Webcasts, Web Conferences, and Webinars
What are webcasts, web conferences and webinars?
A webcast is a way of broadcasting over the Internet. A webcast may either be distributed live or recorded, and may be one-way or conversational. You can participate from your own computer, and often can interact by phone or online through the webcasting program.
Web conferences are used to conduct live meetings or presentations over the Internet. In a web conference, you can sit at your own computer and can connect to other participants via the Internet.
A webinar is a specific type of web conference. It is typically one-way, from the speaker to the audience. A webinar can be very collaborative and include polling and question & answer sessions. In some cases, the presenter may speak over a standard telephone line, pointing out information being presented on screen and the audience can respond over their own telephones.
