OverDrive Training

With the changes coming to OverDrive, I highly recommend you take the two training sessions being offered during the training month 2011(September 13 – October 6th). Not only is this a wonderful opportunity to learn more about our OverDrive service and for staff to get refreshed on the basics, but you also have a chance to win some fantastic prizes.

In this year’s Download Discovery raffle they will be giving away…

What’s not to love?!

How do you enter the Download Discovery raffle? You can enter once for each session you attend (live or recorded) by completing a short quiz to test your knowledge. The quiz is unique for each course, and includes  just two questions. If you are watching a recorded session, you can simply click the raffle ticket icon next to your course listing to launch the quiz. If you attend a live session, the raffle ticket icons for those sessions are available on the Register page.

The more sessions you attend and the more quizzes you complete, the better your chances of winning! (Please submit only one quiz per course.) they’ll tally all the quizzes that are 100 percent correct and enter those into a raffle. They will close raffle entries on October 7, 2011 at 11:59 PM EDT.

Be sure to visit their Learning Center to register for live sessions, and browse recordings and materials to help you get the most from our OverDrive service. For questions about Training Month, please reference their Frequently Asked Questions.

Most of your computers will not run the live sessions but you should be able to view the recorded sessions. The live sessions are filling up quickly! If you want to attend a live session please let me know so I can sign-up and we can reserve the Virtual Training Lab.

These two sessions are being offered at various times and dates throughout the month so please check the Register page for exact dates and times.
