A webinar is an online event hosted by a company/organization that’s broadcasted to a group of individuals who have opted in to hear/watch the broadcast via their computers.
The webinar is run by a moderator, usually a representative of that company/organization and occurs through the use of a web conferencing tool.
There are usually two components to a webinar: Visual and audio.
Guests of the webinar can watch PowerPoint presentations, videos, webpages or any other visual medium that the moderator decides will be useful to the viewers. While the guests watch the visuals, the moderator can also talk about the topic, and they can also receive questions.
