Digital Forums

To build on the collaborative nature of the project, NCCIE has hosted live, on-line interactive discussion forums where people around the world can watch and participate.

These forums are staged through Facebook Live. Viewers are able to interact with the panelists through Facebook or via text message. A Facebook profile is not required to participate.

Watch them here:
