What is a Webinar?

Webinars are a lot of fun and more convenient than on-site workshops. To attend a webinar, you will need a computer with speakers and email. Once you register for the webinar, you will receive an email with a link to the webinar. You will be able to attend the webinar from your home computer at the time of the event or you can also pull up the recording once the event is completed.
