In the spring of 2020, in response to the COVID-19 pandemic and the resulting school closures, Eugene Schwartz created The Online HelpLine, a Vimeo Portfolio of lectures that provided teachers with technical advice and suggestions as well as insights into the onerous challenges of soul and spirit presented by "distance learning" via the Internet. The nine videos that Eugene created are available now only as a part of the Online Conferences. Learn more here.

Think Equal!
Special subject teachers play an increasingly important role in today’s Waldorf setting. The demands of their multi-grade assignments are great, but most Waldorf schools cannot afford to provide them with the mentoring and professional development opportunities that are commonly granted to class teachers.
The Online Conferences for Special Subject Teachers are intended to bridge that gap. Click here to learn more. Click here to register.

The Rudolf Steiner Course may now be downloaded: “Like Having a Foundation Year on My Computer!”
That is how one teacher described her experience of the 25-hour long course by Eugene Schwartz -- the most comprehensive treatment of Rudolf Steiner’s life and work ever given in English. The complete contents of the Rudolf Steiner Course given in March, 2011, are now available and may be purchased as downloads of single segments or the entire course.

There are growing numbers of Waldorf students graduating from Grade Eight, but very few Waldorf High Schools ready to accommodate them. As of right now, help is on the way. For the first time, Waldorf classes will be made available directly to high school students via the Internet. Eugene Schwartz, who created the very successful Online Conferences, is developing High School Main Lesson blocks for homeschooling students, for students attending mainstream high schools who want to continue their Waldorf experience, and for Waldorf high school teachers who need some inspiration and resource materials to teach the main lesson blocks themselves.
