This introduction to web conferencing and webinars will include an overview and test of some paid, freemium and free solutions for virtual meetings, seminars/webinars, streaming/web casting, interviews, presentations and instructor-led courses and training. These systems provide various options enabling organisers to create, deliver, manage, support and track discussions and courses, while supporting interactions that can replicate some or much of the in-person experience.

A review of systems will indicate differing features and selective options for additional collaboration via polls, quizzes, breakout rooms for larger and diverse groups, as well as flexible whiteboard and desktop sharing. While sharing some similarities with instant messaging systems, including wide support for mobile and other networked devices, web conferencing systems also can provide options for recordings and lecture capture, one-way talks and webinars, and a range of add-ons and programmability to customise for specialised requirements.
