Webinar: web-i-nar

Pronunciation: 'web-i-"när'
Function: noun
Etymology: Geek Speak, from the Olde English, "seminar" :-)
Date: circa Late 20th Century

Short for Web-based seminar, a presentation, lecture, workshop or seminar that is transmitted over the Web.

A key feature of a Webinar is its interactive elements -- the ability to give, receive and discuss information. Contrast with Webcast, in which the data transmission is one way and does not allow interaction between the presenter and the audience.
