matured and is becoming popular with the horse-owning public. Today’s “webinars” are presentations aimed at educating hundreds of attendees on a very general topic. Questions are fielded, but most are general, as are the responses Most web broadcasting is done as a form of advertizing and is free web-based presentation… the content is good, what we typically get from a good magazine article. But there is limited interaction,
A Web Seminar, Web Clinic or Web Workshop has a smaller group of Participants, from 6 to 20 max, so that everyone gets individual consideration. There can be many Auditors who attend for a significantly lower fee, but they are observers.
My Objective: Limited Participation = Personal Interaction & A High Value Experience!
Collaborative learning is a situation in which two or more people learn or attempt to learn something together.
When online web seminars are tailored to a smaller group of participants, those participants are able to interact with high calibre presenters without the expense of travel and event fees, and can do it from the comfort of home.
I envision a web seminar experience where participants can share their case studies and ask detailed questions. Optimally they will provide questions and examples ahead of time so that the presentation can be tailored to the groups needs. For this to be efficient, participant group size should be no more than 15 to 20 people.
