Online Media Campus



The educational webinars are brought to you as a member service of the Montana Newspaper Association in conjunction with the Iowa Newspaper Foundation.

For more information about each webinar and to register, go to http://www.onlinemediacampus.com/webinars/

An advanced registration of $35 is required to avoid paying a late fee.

We encourage members to make the webinars a group educational event by gathering around a single monitor or projected image to take advantage of the one registration fee.   And allow a few minutes for discussion after the training.

Advanced registration will allow you to view the webinars at any time after the presentation date.
