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.
