Why is on-demand content important?
We love live events, but we also recognise that for a variety of reasons, making it to an event at a specific time and date, sometimes, just isn't possible. It could be your shift patterns, your internet connection, family or work commitments or a whole host of other reasons.
That's why we made MedAll on-demand. So you can access great teaching and training, at a time, place, and internet connection that works for you 🙌
We've also made is super easy to make your event available on catchup, so if you're a host, making your events accessible just got a whole lot easier 🥳
🎥 Recording your Event
The first step to sharing your event, is recording it live. To find out how to do this, check out this short guide on How do I record my event?
