Can I ask questions during the webinar?

Yes. During the live webinar, you may submit questions and comments and the speaker will respond verbally. For a recorded webinar, your questions will be emailed to the speaker. You will typically receive a response from the speaker within two business days.

Can I attend using a tablet or smartphone?

Yes. You may attend a webinar using a computer, tablet or smartphone.

If I can’t attend a webinar live, can I view the recording later?

What is an on-demand webinar?
