On Friday (July 12th), I hosted my first live Webinar. As some people have asked me, in the run-up to this, what a webinar is, let me explain: it's a live online seminar, where you give a talk or presentation to people who have signed up from around the country (or the globe, even) to attend via their computers. You make your presentation; they can see your slides and you (via your webcam); and they can interact with you via a live online chat system ... don't you love technology!
But when I "attended" a colleague's webinar earlier this year, I was impressed by the online technology they had used - called MeetingBurner - and decided to try it out. Initially, I signed up for the Basic account - it's free and allows you to create webinars with up to 10 attendees.
