We all have heard of presentation or seminar. There are two distinct parties in a seminar; presenter and the participants who either listen or interact with the presenter. Most of the times, the only technology being used in a seminar is a projector or a laser pointer. But then, we are living in the era of technological revolution. Now, you can sit in your office or home and participate in a seminar thousands of miles away. You could just be a participant or even give a lecture listened by several people in real time. You can also answer all the questions raised by the people. It could be a class lecture or a corporate conference. This path-breaking technology is called webinar.

The webinar makes use of modern technologies like the internet, computer and the speaker or headphone. Webinar not only save time but money also. No one including the presenter or the participants needs to be physically present there. All one needs to have is an internet connection.

It helps in saving money spent on travel and material.
