WHAT IS A WEBINAR?
A Webinar is a web-based seminar, similar to a seminar in a conference room as a presentation or lecture, however, it is participated remotely by a computer via the internet. A mini seminar, like an online workshop which you will view on your own computer at a specified time.
It is an innovative way of sharing knowledge as an internet based educational program, allowing you the opportunity to learn about and discuss information given via interactive elements such as question and answer sessions and polls.
HOW DOES A WEBINAR WORK?
All sessions are FREE to attend and are conducted at a pre-scheduled time with participants registering prior to the session. Once registered, comprehensive instructions are sent via email with a link to attend at the scheduled time. Reminders are given prior to the session. Each session is usually of one hours duration and it is advisable to log in five to ten minutes before commencement. Limited numbers are able to attend each session.

There is a section where the attendee may raise their hand to let the host know there is a question or comment. The host then reads the question and replies so as every attendee may hear the Q&A. Mostly, there is a Q&A at the end of the session.
