Frequently Asked Questions Regarding Webinars Project

Q What is a "webinar"?
A: A webinar is a an online session where one or more speakers presents training or informational material to an audience that is listening and watching over the internet. It's not television --you don't see the speaker -- but the speaker is able to share his or her computer desktop, often showing a document or a set of slides, with attendees. You listen to the talk and the slides and visual aids are "pushed" to your screen. The basic benefit is making subject matter experts available without the need to have the speaker and the audience in the same place -- thus reducing travel time and cost.

Q: What does it cost to attend? Is there a fee?
A No, its free.

Q: How many people can attend?
A: Up to 100 attendees

Q: Can clergy or laity from other Dioceses or Orthodox jurisdictions also attend?
A: Sure -- the more the better. If we have space problems we'll try to allocate spaces to this Diocese. We'll cross that bridge if necessary.

Q: What do I need to attend?
A: Computer with a web connection. Here is more info.
