What's a webinar?

Think of a webinar as a way to attend a conference without leaving your workplace or 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 others attending the program -- and they won't be able to see you. You will be able to ask questions - the webinar can be as interactive as you want to make it. The webinar will also be recorded and made available to you after the session, so there's no need for frantic note-taking!
