The shift to remote learning and working at the international level has led to a considerable increase in interest in the webinar and video conferencing software. This new communication tool has appeared on various news platforms, television, radio, and newspapers. But thanks to webinars, it has become possible to defend a thesis, organize an international scientific meeting or give courses at a distance. So how do you go about organizing a quality webinar?
What do I need to know about a webinar?
Basically, a webinar is the combination of two terms: web and seminar. More specifically, it is a seminar held online. Webinars are a form of online communication, based on the use of technology. With this new form of communication, organizers (companies, teachers, etc.) can meet with their audience in a virtual meeting room. They can develop the content for the audience in an engaging and interactive way.
What are the different features offered by the webinar?
Currently, there are a large number of virtual meetings that are organized that bring several participants from different locations or countries together. There are many reasons for this practice. In any case, webinars make it easier to communicate with a dispersed audience. Online event organizers have the opportunity to share knowledge. Audience feedback is also seen in real time.
Some tips for preparing a webinar
To organize a webinar, the organizer needs to equip himself with some quality tools such as a computer or other device and an Internet connection. Apart from that, there are other elements that should be taken into account when organizing such an online event. For example, it is important to think about the webinar room. In other words, you need to consider the space in which you plan to conduct your webinar. Event participants meet in a control center also called a virtual conference room. Beyond the choice of the room, it is fundamental to think about the topic to be discussed with your audience. The topic should be in line with the type of your target audience. A topic about literature or linguistics may meet the needs of those who wish to deepen their knowledge of languages. Other details such as the format of the webinar and the time and date of the event should not be overlooked when organizing a webinar.
