STC Web Seminars


Small graphic for webinar using letter blocks

STC offers live web seminars. In a web seminar, participants listen to the presenter over the phone (much like a conference call) while viewing presentation materials through the website. This format provides easier access to materials for reference during the presentation, as well as a more intimate, "classroom" setting than the typical telephone seminar. Registrants are provided a secure URL and access to both the audio and online elements of the presentation.

To participate in a webinar, you must be able to access Adobe Connect, STC's online meeting space. You can test your connection. This is a standard web seminar tool (no separate download required) and all you need is a reliable Internet connection and phone line, or a computer with VoIP capabilities. If you cannot access Adobe Connect, then you will not be able to participate in a webinar.

Registered attendees will receive their unique webinar login instructions approximately two hours before the webinar is scheduled to begin. Please be on the lookout for these instructions at that time.

Note: Online registration closes three hours before each webinar.
