How to attend a Webinar

To register for a webinar session, you must be enrolled in the course. Please refer to How to Enroll in a Course for more information.

What is a Webinar?

A webinar is a live hosted event which is broadcast to a select group of individuals using the Internet. It can also referred to as a “webcast”, “online event” or “web seminar”.

A webinar may include a presentation, live discussion, and a questions and answer session (polling). Most webinars will also have audio and video components.

Please Note: Attending a webinar using a mobile device is not recommended without a strong Wi-Fi connection. If you attempt to use your cellular (LTE, 4G, or 3G) connection you may experience significant video and audio performance issues. Use a strong wireless or wired connection with a laptop, desktop or tablet computer for the best results.

Webinars on AlzEducate are presented using Adobe Connect. Within a course, a webinar may be identified by the following icon: webinar icon

A webinar may have multiple sessions that you can register for. For example, the ODCTP Introduction Webinar usually has two sessions at different times on a single day. You can choose to attend the session that fits with your schedule.
