BRAZ-TESOL is organizing a serie of free webinars to allow BRAZ-TESOLers from all over the country to participate.
What is a webinar?
A webinar is an online event that is broadcasted to a group of individuals through their computers via the Internet.
A webinar allows a speaker to share multimedia content with audiences that can be spread out over a large geographical area. You can log located anywhere. A webinar also allows the speaker to interact with an audience. The audience can ask the speaker or moderator (who is leading the webinar) questions in real-time through an instant messaging tool.
