A webinar? What is it?
In a webinar, you stay at home, or wherever you want, and you use your own computer. You log in at the specific day and time -- and then you listen and participate.
The vital aspect is that you must be preregistered. After you register here at Eventbrite, your name will be placed on the log with GotoWebinar and they will email you the instructions you need. These will contact a special log in code that you use to log in at the appropriate time. You may use a phone and/or a computer; however, the computer allows you to also see the PowerPoint Presentations. The phone or a USB microphone on your computer allows you to talk to the presenter and others.
