What is a Webinar

Webinar Definition: A webinar is exactly what it sounds like: a seminar that takes place online. But it’s not just seminars: you can hold presentations, tutorials, debates, conferences, demonstrations, anything you want.

Want to know why this is such a great tool? Because it does the hard work for you.* It brings your audience together in one place and takes care of the tedious technical set-up part. All you need is a secure Internet connection and a decent pair of headphones or speakers to give or attend the presentation. You don’t even have to leave the house.

*Unfortunately, the only thing GoToWebinar can’t do is write your presentation for you.


How does it work?

  • Set a date and the software will take care of sending out the invites
  • Recipients will be able to register for the event
  • When it’s show time, simply click the ‘Start’ button, turn on your webcam, activate screen sharing and you are good to go
  • Create reports on audience engagement and survey results afterwards

- Peter Maljaars, Global IT Services and Infrastructure Manager, O'Neill
