Previous Webinar Resources

Welcome to the Previous OTAN Webinar Resources page. Here you will find recordings and other resources provided by presenters for webinars in the OTAN COVID-19 series hosted by OTAN and provided by our sister leadership projects CASAS and CALPRO, as well as vendors who have supported both teachers and learners by providing access and resources during this difficult time. The columns in the table show the date of the webinar, the title, a link to the recording of the webinar, as well as resources provided by the presenter. The small This content on this link does not currently pass OTAN's Universal Access standards. icon next to the link indicates that the link will direct you to the content, but it has not yet passed OTAN's Universal Access Standards.

In the interest of sharing webinar materials in a timely manner, OTAN is granted at grace period under our contract with the California Department of Education to make each resource fully WCAG 2.1 accessible. Once the content is accessible, the small This content on this link does not currently pass OTAN's Universal Access standards. icon will be removed and the link will be changed to direct you to the fully accessible version of the content available on the OTAN website. All accessible webinars and resources will be available as soon as possible.
