According to http://www.efltalks.com/Events.html

This event is being held to celebrate World Teacher’s Day with a 10 in 10 for 10, a free 10 hour marathon of webinars. Each webinar will be 10 minutes long and utilize 10 slides only. The idea is to get to the heart of the subject. We will open one webinar room lasting 10 hours so there is only one link to enter the webathon.

Or Register at http://efltalks.com/ and use the entry you will be taken to immediately on registration.

The host or hosts will have a 2 minute window to thank the presenter, mention the speaker’s site or email and then introduce the next speaker. This will allow for 5 speakers per hour so we hope to have 50 speakers during the course of the marathon.

All presentations were recorded and are now posted on http://www.efltalks.com/Videos.html (organized and set up like the TED talks page).

This is a free and non-profit event. Helping new and future teachers is our goal, and we also want to have fun.
