Virtual Presentations Roundtable

This was yet another panel discussion chaired by Thomas MacEntee. It featured several genealogical speakers who have begun to use technloogy described as ‘Webinars’ to make their presentations.

A webinar is an interactive presentation delivered over the internet. There are many ways to do this, but it appears that the technology has really matured and the costs are beginning to drop.

In fact, their discussion was one of several to be streamed live during the conference and featured several panelists who were not attending the conference.

This is a capability (podcasts is another) that holds a lot of promise for Genealogical Societies as a way to reach a much larger audience that is possile with a conventional face to face meeting.
