Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

What does FIND cost to join? 

It's free! FIND is funded by a grant from the Iowa Department of Education and managed by ASK Resource Center. This grant allows for this site to remain free to members.

What are live chats?

Live chats are real-time discussions held on FIND in the chat room. You are free to start a live chat with anyone online, although FIND staff also holds scheduled chats on specific topics and invites guest chatters online to facilitate these chats. FIND chats are always free to join and are open to everyone, although we try to schedule chats in conjunction with a specific training or webinar. FIND chats are a great way to get questions answered if you're unable to attend a training that may be of interest to you.
