"How to..." online sessions

What online sessions are available?

Ever wondered if you are making the most of Care Opinion?  Looking for tips on how to generate stories, respond with impact or use the clever reporting tools at your disposal?  

We run a series of really short "how to..." webinar (online) sessions designed to help. You'll find session descriptions below should help you choose the ones for you (though we really recommend you participate in them all!).

They are suitable whether you’re brand new to Care Opinion, or have been using the site for a while. In fact we recommend that you join in every few months as we're constantly innovating and adding new features to the site so we will most likely have new things to share with you.  

Have a read of each session description, and check the available dates for one that suits you. You can book on as many as you think will help you make the most of your subscription.

What do you need?

  • Access to WebEx (July meetings only) or join.me.  These are the applications we use to run our webinars (sometimes we also use Zoom)
    We recommend that you have a chat with your IT Department so they know you're going to be using this platform as they might need to make some changes to your access rights and firewalls. 
  • A computer with internet connection
  • Headphones & microphone: so you can listen in as well as talk to us.  If you don't have these, you can dial in on a phone line.
  • Webcam (optional - though you look lovely we don't need to see you 😊)
