Using webcasts for equine education
New to webcasts? Learn how to discover how we use this tool in MSU Equine Extension Programs!
A webcast is simply a media presentation distributed over the internet.
At Michigan State University Extension, we are always working hard to bring you useful, factual, science-based information on a large variety of topics. With the advancements in technology, it makes sharing this information easier than ever! One of the great ways that we have worked to provide you with equine information is through My Horse University and eXtension.
For those of you who are unfamiliar, My Horse University (MHU) was established in 2005 at Michigan State University. MHU brings research and knowledge from world-renowned experts to online courses and products. MHU’s offers courses that provide a comprehensive and convenient learning experience for horse enthusiasts throughout the world. The online format of MHU is very flexible; in order to meet everyone’s demanding schedules!
Maybe you are not ready to commit to taking a full course? Not a problem! My Horse University and eXtension offer free monthly webcasts September through May. Webcasts are also recorded and archived and are available for free viewing from anywhere at any time! Some of our recently archived webcasts are listed below.
