What is a Webinar?

A webinar is a way to attend a seminar in the comfort of your office or home. Using your computer and telephone (or computer speakers), you can hear a presentation (like a conference call) and see the presenter's slides by watching over an Internet connection. You won't be able to see the presenter or the moderator or others attending the program, and they won't be able to see you.
