If you are watching a webinar for CEU credit, it is very important that you log into Collaborate with your full name as your display name and email address (the same that you registered with). Otherwise, it is difficult for us to determine that you have watched the webinar and we might miss giving you the credit you have earned. Thank you!Updated on June 6, 2013 at 11:49 am
