A Teleconference, a Videoconference, a Webinar, and a Webcast are Often Used Interchangeably and Possibly Incorrectly
Webinar? Webcast? Teleconference or Videoconference? Choosing the right tool can be overwhelming, but it is critical in order to gain the results that you need. There is quite a bit of confusion about what each of these is and often the terms are used interchangeably, thus causing and adding to the confusion. We must think about what kind of multi-media communication we need for our event. What sort of graphics or video will we need to display on the screen? Does the video stream need to integrate with other communication tools or can it stand alone? Does it need to be live, on-demand or both?
