How Webinars Work

IFEA Webinars are Website-enabled seminars that function much like a teleconference. They use your computer's Website browser to display presentation materials and other applications important to the Webinar topic, with the audio portion of the presentation provided either through your computer speakers or over the phone.

Once your registration has been submitted, you will receive an email from the IFEA confirming that you have been registered for the Webinar. The day before the scheduled Webinar, you will receive an email with specific instructions on how to log in for the Webinar. You will receive this email again, the day of the Webinar.

Once this information has been received, joining a Webinar is as easy as 1, 2, 3!
  • Log In To The Webinar: To start the Webinar, log in to the specific website address that you received for the Webinar and connect to the presentation. Webinars can be viewed on virtually any computer with a high-speed internet connection.
  • Listening To The Webinar: After you've logged in and gained access to the Website, you have two options to hear the audio portion. You can either dial the telephone number provided to hear the webinar via a conference call, or if you have speakers, you may listed via your computer speakers. (The phone number provided will not be an 800 number, so all costs for the call will be incurred by the registrant.)
  • Sit Back and Learn: Once you are logged in, all you need to do is sit back and learn! It's just like any other seminar, except you don't have to leave your desk! You can still even ask questions to the speaker via the online messaging system that is part of the Webinar screen.
