Your original thoughts as to the effectiveness of the webinar
As to being an attentive part of entire 1 hour 16 minutes webinar session, I found it quite helpful for both, the students and the teachers. The best part of course as the whole was the questions and answers sessions, which were arranged from time to time sequence, which was extremely useful in regards to clarification and revision of the lecture. Both the speakers were highly qualified and experienced. Audience on their part was contributing fantastically, and their intellectual questions were adding lot more to the quality and usefulness of the web session
