A Simple Webinar to Create Effective Webinars

Keep it simple, keep it easy, and cover the basics; almost anyone can do an effective webinar from almost anywhere all by themselves. Don’t let the technology curve or the know-it-all from the IT department deter you, web-based communication is for everyone, not just the experts, and it’s easy to deploy. Most importantly, it’s efficient, quick, and very cost effective. Web-based learning and communication isn’t the future, it’s right now, and it’s here to stay. Join HP’s self-taught webinar advocate Timothy Mitchell for a quick punch list of what you’ll need, and how to get filming all by yourself.
