More general information about webinars.
Robert runs webinars from time to time on a number of topics. This web page explains some of the Frequently Asked Questions about webinars, and about how these webinars operate.
What is a webinar?The term webinar is actually a shortened form of "web-based seminar".
It is basically a type of seminar, presentation or conference that is conducted over the internet. It might be a straight presentation of material to a passive audience, or it might be an interactive conference session. The webinar participants might be able to interact by asking questions using a simple text-message style of interface, or perhaps by using an audio facility as in a tele-conference (a telephone-based conference or meeting).
These days, the simplest and most common webinar is where a presenter simply works through a set of presentation slides, and speaks to the audience - much like a live slide presentation (many people refer to these as a PowerPoint Presentation).
Some webinars are "open" so that anyone can join in; but many webinars require each participant to "register" first, and the webinar might only be available to those who have registered.

With some webinars it might be necessary to also use the Skype software which will need to be installed on your computer, and at least a free Skype account. There is no fee involved to set this up for the free Skype-to-Skype phone calls over the internet. If you will need to use Skype, the webinar information will explain this.
What is Skype? - If you are interested, you can see the features list.
