National History Day 2015

National History Day Mentoring Program - Webcast

Turning Points in History: People, Ideas, Events

This is an interactive webcast and we want to hear from you!  You can send comments and questions to us.  Here's how: click on the tab that says "social stream". It's right next to the one that says "videos," located below the video screen. Next, type your question into the box, select "ustream" as the social network you would like to post to, and click "say" button.

In order to ask a question via chat, however, you must have a ustream account, which is free. You simply need to enter your name and email address and make up a username and password, then you will have an account and you can ask a question.

Using the "chat" function will also allow you to dialogue with other viewers who are participating in the NHD coverage.

If you do not wish to use Ustream you may still contact us via email.  Send your questions to:  We will monitor that account throughout the day and do our best to answer your questions in a timely manner.

At the end of the workshop please take a moment and complete our online survey.  We will use your feedback to shape our future workshops.  You can find the survey here .

Thank you
