Web-based seminar, a webinar is a presentation, lecture, workshop or seminar that is transmitted over the Web using video conferencing software. A key feature of a Webinar is its interactive elements: the ability to give, receive and discuss information in real-time. Using Webinar software participants can share audio, documents and applications with webinar attendees. This is useful when the webinar host is conducting an lecture or information session. While the presenter is speaking they can share desktop applications and documents. Contrast with Webcast, in which the data transmission is one way and does not allow interaction between the presenter and the audience.Read More
Webconferences are presentations that involve an audio and video component. The audio portion of the event is delivered via phone or over the Internet, so that participants can listen via their computer speakers. The video portion of the event is delivered via the Internet, giving participants a presentation to watch while listening to the instructor.
A training workshop is a type of interactive training where participants carry out a number of training activities rather than passively listen to a lecture or presentation. Broadly, two types of workshops exist: A general workshop is put on for a mixed audience, and a closed workshop is tailored towards meeting the training needs of a specific group.
Keep in mind that when you participate in a webinar session there are usually many other people participating as well. That means that it is important for you to be ready to go when the session begins. Have the email that contains the URL to attend the session and login instructions handy. Five to ten minutes before the start of the session, login by going to the URL that was sent to you via email. Use your telephone or microphone's mute button if you have background noise in your computer area. Voices of patrons or staff, ringing telephones, and other noise can be distracting for webinar participants.
Teleseminars are seminars that are delivered via a conference call over the telephone and/or over the Internet. The instructor moderates the call, while the attendees listen. To engage listeners, many instructors provide outlines, notes sheets or copies of PowerPoint slides to follow when listening to the presentation.
