Beyond the Books Online Series FAQs
What is a webinar?
Webinars are presentations that combine audio and visual components and are held online to allow audiences to get involved, no matter where they are. The visual component of a webinar can include PowerPoint presentations, videos, web pages or any other multimedia content, which are accompanied by audio broadcast via the audience’s computers.
How can I get involved?
No matter where you are, you will be able to participate in these webinars as long as you have an internet connection. Make sure you check out the webinar schedule online and register your attendance. After registering, you will be sent a confirmation email as well as three reminders: one a week before the webinar, one a day before and one an hour before. In order to connect to the webinar, all you need to do is just click on the link in one of these emails.
Do I need to do anything to prepare for the webinar?
You don’t need to bring or prepare anything in order to participate in any of the webinars. The only thing you will need to participate in a webinar is access to the internet and to follow the prompts when launching the Zoom program.
What will happen during the webinar?
The presenter/s will speak about the allocated topic for approximately 45 minutes and then there will be an opportunity for webinar participants to ask questions. Throughout the webinar, viewers will also be asked questions in the form of a poll. This ensures that the speakers are tailoring their presentation to the wants of the audience.
What happens if I miss a webinar I’m interested in?
All webinars will be recorded. This means that if you miss a webinar you’re interested in, or know in advance you won’t be able to make it, make sure you still register and then a recording will be sent to you. That way, you can listen to it in your own time.
