What is a webinar?

Webinar training is like having your own Velg Training consultant on your team and in your office! A webinar (online seminar) is a way to attend professional development without leaving your office or home. Connect to online professional development using your operating system (desktop or personal computer) to view the presentation and interact with the presenter and other participants.

Listen to the session via Telephone (like a conference call) or Mic & Speakers (audio headset connected to your computer system), participate and provide feedback using the 'Hands Up' tool, 'Poll' feature, 'Chat' window and Mic options. Essentially, a webinar is an online seminar in real time, with plenty of opportunities for interaction.

How do I register for a webinar?
