How to make managing users simple

Last week we joined-up with Education Technology to bring you a webinar all about managing users in education, whether that be schools, colleges or universities.

It was an insightful discussion between Education Technology’s Editor, Sophie Beyer, and our expert panel, with some thought-provoking questions from education technology professionals from schools, colleges and universities along the way.

Don’t worry if you missed out, you can now view a recording of the webinar online.
