Webinars make sharing information and collaborating with geographically-dispersed colleagues easy. Webinar presenters can share audio, documents and applications with their webinar attendees via the screen sharing feature. Q&A sessions can be conducted via live chat function at any point during the webinar.
Being able to work on a project together without everyone having to be in the same room means you can vastly reduce the amount of money and time required. Webinars eliminate the travel time and costs involved in meeting in person, allowing you to improve your productivity and achieve your business goals more efficiently.
Webinar is short for web-based seminar. The host can make a presentation to many guests or a group can work together on a project in real time, making it suitable for:
The host sends out email invitations to guests including the link to join. It may also include a dial-in number and code for a simultaneous audio conference.
Dialling into an audio conference at the same time as the webinar allows everyone to enjoy high-quality audio phone lines rather than using your computer's mic and speakers.
If the webinar is being used for a presentation, the host is able to mute all participants to ensure there are no interruptions or distracting noises in the background while presenting.
