Why to take part in webinars for teachers?
Many people do not know what the difference is between online webinars and online courses, which often makes it difficult to choose the online learning format that is right for them. Let’s briefly look at the main differences between a webinar and an online course. It is then up to you to choose the online professional development format that suits you the best!
Webinars are basically web-based seminars. They usually last between 60-90 min. Webinars are hosted on a platform (like Zoom, Teams etc.) and different platforms require different ways to join the platform (most often a specific link).
Webinars usually deliver live content. There is generally a lecturer speaking and showing slides, videos, etc. In addition, the webinars are for the most part interactive. The participants can most often actively participate: for example they can send comments or there can be voting, quizzes, Q&A, etc. What a great way to ask questions from a real expert in live situation!
Online courses are also known as digital courses, e-courses, e-learning modules, or online training programs. They usually include several lessons and are accessible through any desktop or mobile device. Online courses can include different type of contents: videos, audio recordings, learning assignments, quizzes, additional material etc.
Online courses vary in duration. Since many online courses can take several hours to complete, they can generally deliver more in-depth knowledge than webinars. However, they don’t usually have live interaction possibilities such as webinars.
Both webinars and online courses are excellent choices for online professional development. Sometimes, you can get acquainted with the topic in online webinar and the online course can be the next step for you to dive more deeply into the theme.
You can participate in online webinars for teachers either alone or together with your colleagues or even with your whole school. It is easy to access webinars from your home or other preferred location and develop your professional skills and knowledge! Webinars also allow you to exchange ideas with your colleagues – even around the globe!
