Brain Fitness Webinar Series

I have been trav­el­ling much over the last 2 weeks to speak at a num­ber of con­fer­ences and uni­ver­si­ties. I promised I would be shar­ing some of the key high­lights, but we have decid­ed to do some­thing bet­ter to do jus­tice to the rich­ness and com­plex­i­ty of the field we cov­er. We are going to launch an exper­i­ment: a Brain Fit­ness Webi­nar Series.

This inau­gur­al Brain Fit­ness Webi­nar Series will con­sist of 3 free live ses­sions. The series cov­ers the most fun­da­men­tal advances in cog­ni­tive sci­ence and their impli­ca­tions for indi­vid­u­als, com­pa­nies and orga­ni­za­tions. And we are hon­ored to have John Med­i­na lead of the sessions!

Each event is inde­pen­dent, in top­ic and in reg­is­tra­tion process.

Webi­nar #1: In “The State of the Brain Fit­ness Soft­ware Mar­ket, 2008, I will pro­videBrain Fitness Market Report an overview of the sci­ence, mar­ket, and ven­dor land­scape of the emerg­ing brain fit­ness soft­ware mar­ket, based on our recent mar­ket report on this grow­ing category.
— Tar­get audi­ence: Exec­u­tives, pro­fes­sion­als, investors, reporters and blog­gers inter­est­ed in learn­ing more about the brain fit­ness market.

    Sign me for webi­nar series. Have sev­er­al brain train programs.

  2. Kenneth Heinrich on May 15, 2008 at 2:57

    Hel­lo again, Alvaro.
    Sounds like you are mov­ing right along with new ideas. I have a ques­tion. Is the infor­ma­tion in the webi­na­rs sub­stan­tial­ly dif­fer­ent from that in the pub­li­ca­tions, your print­ed and online report, for exam­ple, or John Med­i­na’s Brain Rules book (which I have pur­chased and am enjoying)?

    Thanks, Ken

  3. Kenneth Heinrich on May 15, 2008 at 3:01

    Hel­lo yet again.

    Are the “Ads by Google” prod­ucts or com­pa­nies that Smart­Brains has reviewed and approved?


  4. Lyn Harrington on May 15, 2008 at 4:08

    Can you describe the for­mat e.g if I am on dial-up will I be able to watch, hear etc. the web broad­cast or do I require High Speed ?

  5. Alvaro on May 15, 2008 at 9:06

    Hel­lo Jan, we can’t sign you up. You need to find the webi­nar you want to attend, and reg­is­ter your­self. Thank you.

    1) the first 2 webi­na­rs are an intro­duc­tion to those same mate­ri­als. If you have the report, you know the sub­ject in much more depth than we can cov­er in a webi­nar. If you have the book, same.

    The third webi­nar is dif­fer­ent, it is more of a sum­ma­ry of many oth­er top­ics we cov­er in this blog.
    2) Those ads are man­aged by Sci­en­tif­ic American/ Google. We have noth­ing to do with them. So please don’t believe we have reviewed or endorsed any prod­uct sim­ply because an ad appears for it.

    Lyn: webi­na­rs are most often used in cor­po­rate meet­ings and events, using high-speed. We don’t rec­om­mend peo­ple access them using dial-up…but you can cer­tain­ly try!

  6. dom on May 21, 2008 at 12:40

    reg­is­ter­ing for the webi­na­rs, when reg­is­ter­ing for the June ses­sion, I have to input the same info…is there no short cut? 


  7. Alvaro on May 21, 2008 at 7:44

    Hel­lo Dom,

    Each webi­nar requires sep­a­rate reg­is­tra­tion, sor­ry for the inconvenience.

  8. John on May 22, 2008 at 3:40

    Are these webi­na­rs going to be avail­able in anoth­er for­mat for down­load such as a pod­cast or mp3? They are sched­uled for times when I’m unavailable.

  9. Diana Abrams on May 27, 2008 at 8:04

    Was very dis­ap­point­ed I signed up for Webi­nar #1: In “The State of the Brain Fit­ness Soft­ware Mar­ket, 2008 and received no link to access the webinar

  10. Alvaro on May 27, 2008 at 8:26

    John: not for the time being. Depend­ing on the recep­tion of this series, we may repeat it, or sim­i­lar, in the future.

    Diana: all email con­fir­ma­tions and reminders are sent auto­mat­i­cal­ly via the webi­nar plat­form. Your anti-Spam sys­tem may have mis­clas­si­fied those reminders. Please see if you find your details there; oth­er­wise email us at sup­port at sharp­brains dot com.

  11. Michele on May 27, 2008 at 2:21

    Thank you very much for offer­ing today’s webi­nar. My res­i­dents and I great­ly enjoyed it. We did have a cou­ple of ques­tions afterwards.

    1. Are any of the com­pa­nies you reviewed non-for-profit?

    2. Can you send me the slides Pri­or to you webi­nar? It would have been help­ful to take notes on the actu­al pages. We are signed up for #2 and can’t wait.

    Thank you,
    Kendal at Oberlin

  12. Alvaro on May 28, 2008 at 5:50

    Michele, thank you for par­tic­i­pat­ing yes­ter­day, and for your com­ment. I respond­ed to your emails ques­tions. Quick­ly, on these ones:

    1- None is. 

    2- As explained via dif­fi­cult, I under­stand your request but we can’t imple­ment it…the main rea­son being we want peo­ple to actu­al­ly attend the webinar.

    Talk to you next Tuesday!
