webinar (plural webinars)

  1. An interactive seminar conducted via the World Wide Web. Usually a live presentation, lecture or workshop that happens in real time, as users participate through chatting, video-chatting, file-sharing, or asking questions with a microphone.
    I just got an email invitation to a webinar on the value of primary sources.
    • 2002, Ann Rockley, Managing Enterprise Content [1]:
      Web conferences or Webinars are a great way to learn about products or subjects of interest.
    • 2003, Francoise Tourniaire, Just Enough CRM [2]:
      Webinars are often painfully short on exposure to the actual product, devoting half of the typical one-hour length to an “expert” disserting on some lofty topic, another fifteen minutes to a fluffy presentation about the company and its strategic direction, and a scant five minutes to a quick demo.
    • 2003, Andrea Learned, quoted in Martha Barletta's Marketing to Women [3]:
      It's not that all women aren't interested in learning to download files or take Webinars, it's that their “why bother” factor may well kick in.
