Webinars & Lions Centennial, a match? by Tom Van Kerschaver | Jan 20, 2016 | Centennial, Cyber Lions, Social Media, Tools | 0 comments The word ‘Webinar’ is a contraction of two words ‘Web’ & ‘Seminar’ so basically a Webinar is an online seminar. In most cases webinars are recorded for people who could not attend the actual webinar. But do not confuse webinars with online training videos. The big difference is that webinars are interactive! It is an interactive online seminar. Depending of the type of webinar, attendees can electronically raise their hand to ask questions real time over the microphone of their PC. This is handy for Q&A sessions, but even without a microphone and during the webinar, attendees are able to type in their questions. Another great option is to do live polls with immediate display of the results. So the advantages of a webinar speak for themselves. No need for timely traveling to attend a seminar Reduces the environmental impact of traveling by car/boat/air Recording available afterwards Less paper manuals Never experienced a webinar?
