Welcome: Remember to introduce yourself.

In light of what is going on with the Corona Virus and the high demand for live online learning solutions right now, I thought I would compile a whole bunch of different resources we have to help you start your journey!

I am going to structure the different learning points to help you focus on what you need and where you are currently.

I hope this helps!
