From the Experts: Advice for Online Chess Academy Success

At Clickto, we strive to be experts in the online learning space. But sometimes, the advice virtual educators need is very specific to their field. That’s why we created an industry-specific series of webinars, bringing in top names in the areas of chess, coding, art, and more, and simultaneously supporting growing companies by spotlighting those who’ve gone before them.

We began this venture focusing on chess, and we were blown away by the results. Read on to learn a little bit more about how the show played out.
