On-line Learning (Webinars)

WHAT IS A WEBINAR?

Webinar is short for Web-based seminar. Webinar's are just like a conference room based seminar except that the participants view the presentation through their Web-browser and listen to the audio through their telephone or computer speakers.

Modern day webinars are more interactive than ever as the technology enables the presenter to give, receive and discuss information. This is different from a "Webcast", in which the data transmission is one way and does not allow interaction between the presenter and the audience.
