About Webinars

A webinar is a web-based seminar hosted in real-time which allows attendees in remote locations to view, listen, and participate in the same conference using a personal computer. Presenters share documents (ex. PowerPoint) and applications via their computers. Webinars are often interactive and may include two-way audio and real-time instant messaging, allowing presenters and participants to discuss information as it is presented.

Webinars are different than webcasts, which include live streaming video of the presenter and allow for people to email questions to sccounties@gmail.com. Webcasts are intended to be viewed as part of an audience gathered at a satellite location.
