Delivering Training at a Distance
Cheryl Stenstrom, independent Library Consultant

What is a Webcast?
This is an expanded version of our popular audio conferences. You will need a computer and the ability to get on the internet... and a telephone. That is it. No special hardware; no special software. You will be given an address on the Web at which you will sign in with a password that will be given to you in your registration confirmation. You will be able to see the presenter's desktop and see what he or she is doing as you watch. Like all audio conferences, there is no limit on the number of people that might be around the phone at each location. The limitation will be in how many people can comfortably see the computer. If you have a data projector, there is probably no limit.
