Fleet and Family Support Centers throughout Naval District Washington (NDW) have created a tool called ‘‘Defense Connect On-line” (DCO). DCO is a web-based learning system that allows users to participate in workshops, seminars, and on-line meetings.
With the advent of web-based education and conferencing programs such as DCO, people can learn at the same time even though they are in different places. Learning can now be accomplished while sitting at a desk at work, or at home, or while sitting on a living room recliner.
Starting in 2010, the Fleet and Family Support Centers throughout NDW will be hosting a variety of on-line workshops utilizing the DCO conferencing tool.
The first of these workshops, ‘‘Saving and Managing Your Income,” will be presented by the NDW Personal Financial Program Managers. This on-line workshop is scheduled for Wednesday, Feb. 17, at 10 a.m. The webinars are available to all service members and their families. Additional on-line workshops will be offered throughout the year.
