Webinar Description 

Interested in delivering webinars, but don't know where to start? View our webinar, Training an Invisible Audience: Delivering Effective Webinars.

During this one-hour presentation, we hear from TechSoup webinar program manager Kyla Hunt and independent library consultant, author, and trainer Stephanie Gerding on the basics of providing effective webinars.

Some of the questions we address are:

  • How is online training different from face-to-face or in-person training?
  • What planning is involved in designing and delivering a webinar?
  • How do you encourage audience participation and interaction?
  • What are the differences between webinar platforms?

Training an Invisible Audience: Delivering Effective Webinars is suited for public libraries and nonprofits interested in providing webinars for their communities.
