NATA 2023 On-Demand Now Available

August 1, 2023 by Lydia Hicks

NATA 2023 On-Demand is available to both in-person attendees and on-demand registrants Aug. 1-Oct. 31.

For on-demand-only registrants, NATA 2023 On-Demand offers up to 20 CEUs. Registrants must view sessions in their entirety and complete the session assessments at the end to earn CEUs.

In-person attendees who were not able to earn all 20 CEUs while in Indy can earn their remaining CEUs in the on-demand portal.

NATA Convention Program Committee Chair Michelle Boling, PhD, LAT, ATC, said the portal is also a space for the in-person convention attendee who has earned all 20 CEUs to review what they learned, although more CEUs can’t be earned.

“And if at the time when you were in the session, you didn't have the handout for the slides, you actually could go ahead and print those out … and take notes on the slides, because there is a handout library directly within the portal that's accessible to [all registrants],” she said.

Boling said while the on-demand portal has benefited attendees with the flexibility and convenience of recorded content, it also provides viewers the ability to control its closed captioning function by turning it on and off, as needed. The portal also offers registrants many other accessibility features, such as font adjustments, color adjustments, built-in search and more.

There is also a user guide available in the portal for a smooth on-demand experience.

In addition to watching select sessions recorded in Indianapolis, in the NATA 2023 On-Demand portal, registrants can view the NATA Research & Education Foundation Free Communications Program Poster Presentations and access the AT Expo exhibitor list.
