What is a Webinar?
Think about a webinar as a way to attend a educational session without leaving home. Using your computer and telephone, you can hear a presentation (like a conference call) and also see the presenter's slides (watching over an internet connection). You won't be able to see the presenter or the moderator, or others attending the program -- and they won't be able to see you. (A plus if you want to attend in your pajamas!). You need to register ahead of time in order to reserve your space and obtain instructions for how to join the program on the scheduled day and time. Keep the email confirmation handy because you'll need the information it provides to join the webinar.
