LIASA Webinar

LIASA offers a webinar facility to its members, using Big Blue Button open source software.

What is a webinar?

Webinar is the short for Web-based seminar, and is a presentation, lecture, workshop or seminar that is transmitted over the Web using video conferencing software. A key feature of a webinar is its interactive elements — the ability to give, receive and discuss information. Participants from all over the world simultaneously connect to a web address, from where they can listen to a life presentation and actively participate. It is in contrast with a webcast, in which the data transmission is one way and does not allow interaction between the presenter and the audience. (Source)
