WEBINAR (WEB-BASED SEMINAR)
A webinar is a live meeting that takes place over the web. The meeting can be a presentation, discussion, demonstration, or instructional session. Participants can view documents and applications via their computers, while shared audio allows for presentation and discussion.
Short for 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.
