What is a Webinar and How Do I Attend One?
What is a Webinar?
Webinars are web-based seminars or classes. You may "attend" on any computer (Mac or Windows). You may use iPads and iPhones, or Android devices when you download the GotoWebinar app. It's just like being in class, but you can attend in the comfort of your home, or wherever you are.
What do I need to "connect" to a Webinar?
The equipment you need to take part in a webinar is relatively simple. You can actually take part in a webinar with just your school laptop which has built-in speakers and a built in microphone. You may also use your personal computer. Generally, these work just fine with or without a microphone. When you join a webinar, you can check your speakers and microphone prior to the actual class. Some people prefer to use headsets with microphones attached also. These work great and filter out noise from outside. A microphone is not required to attend a webinar.
You can also attend a webinar using a Smart device like a pad or a phone. Please download the GotoWebinar app from your app store and this will make it easy to attend.
