    Much better audio here. At first it didn't come through, but a refresh helped. Very odd.

    Remember to everyone watching -- you can sign up now and catch the lectures that you might have missed this morning, they will be available to you for the next 90 days.

    Thanks,

    Remember too you can ask questions here, and I'll answer them, just like the booth inside of CEwire2015.com

    Just a reminder, you can pick up your CE certificates in the "help center" in the conference.

    There might be a slight delay, if you don't see the certifcates immediately, fear not they will be there!

    Thanks
    adam

    ps -- we're getting really good feedback about the talks so far, thanks so much to our speakers for doing a bang-up job.

    We're streaming the 'classic' ODwire.org webinar about Essilor and Coastal Contacts for the next hour. It has been the most watched show of the past year -- 5,000 members have viewed it.

    Enjoy!

    Day 1 complete! That was something else, I hope everyone had a great time, and if you haven't signed up, it isn't too late. We've got day 2 coming up tomorrow, and all of day 1's lectures are available to view as an archive.

    As an aside, we've got just about 1,300 OD participants (compare to AOA's annual meeting, at 1,750... we're closing in!)

    That's an insane number for a first program! It's a real testament to this site, the ODWire participants and the Farkas' that it all came together to this degree right out of the gate.

    So, I am curioius, how do you track who was in the room?

    I signed in early today...you even mentioned my name. Then a patient called and said they had a contact lens stuck in their eye. And it was "bloody".

    So, off I went to the office to of course see that there was no contact lens in their eye.

    The system tracks everyone who goes to a lecture, so that it knows you 'attended' (of course, it can't tell if you stayed awake!)

    yes, if you didn't 'pass' the test you can go back and re-take it as many times as you need to in order to pass. I think 70% is passing.

    We also had a situation today where one lecture had test questions that were impossible -- not covered by the lecture content. I sent the issue onto ARBO they are taking care of it.

    BTW, if you don't see a certificate in your test page immediately after passing, don't panic -- the techs tell me that it can take some time before they are generated.

    hope you enjoyed day 1!

    So far no certificates from the second day of courses/quizzes I took and also missing one or two from the first day.
