Webinar

A seminar conducted online. For example, one may conduct a business meeting, a college class or any number of other discussions via webinar using various video chat technologies. Webinars have become more common due to increasingly reliable technology and the expense of traveling to in-person meetings. The term is formed from the combination of "Web" and "seminar."
