What is a Webinar?


What is a webinarYou may have heard the term “webinar” bandied about in your office or at corporate events, but what exactly is a webinar, and why should you care?

At the most basic level, a webinar is an online seminar. It is an opportunity to learn or to educate through online media in all of its forms. It is also an opportunity to collaborate remotely in ways that you may never have been able to in person. A webinar takes the learning experience of an informative meeting or class and spreads it to a wider audience with the option of cooperative work throughout the world. If you are the person who wants to host a webinar, you can set one up, give all interested parties a time, and then you can conduct your webinar from your computer as they watch and participate from their offices.

Since webinars, by definition, are hosted online, there are a number of benefits to holding a webinar rather than an in-person training session. Primary among those is convenience. Neither the host nor the participants have to go anywhere in order to take part in a webinar. They can simply sit at their desk and join in from there. This saves on time and money, plus it’s more comfortable to many people. Webinars also allow for rapid, easy collaboration through online tools ranging from simply sharing documents instantly to actively working together on a given problem during the session. Webinars also allow more people to participate at once. While you may not have the budget to fly in a seminar host from Europe or Asia, you can set up a webinar hosted from anywhere quickly and cheaply.
