What's a webinar?

A webinar is a seminar held on the Internet. In short, it is almost like an in-person face-to-face seminar with speakers and an audience. You log in at the appointed time using your computer or tablet, then watch and listen as the speakers present their materials. Just like an actual seminar, you can ask questions for clarification.  We will record our webinars to be able to share these videos with others who cannot attend during the appointed time.

You will need:

  • A computer or tablet connected to high-speed internet
  • A speaker or headphones if you don't have a speaker in your computer or tablet already
  • The ability to receive e-mails - the actual web address of the webinar is sent by e-mail

No webinars are currently scheduled. Below you will find a list of past webinars and recordings.

Seminarios Web

Los Seminarios Web están siendo programados constantemente- la agenda tentativa está más abajo. Mientras se confirma la fecha y nuestros invitados, favor de incribirse aquí para recibir más información.


Algunos seminarios ya han sucedido, pero en la parte debajo de la página se encuentran videos y más información sobre los mismos.



El seminario web se refiere al tipo de seminario solo conducido por la web. En pocas palabras, es un seminario cara a cara, con audiencia y orador, pero se llega por medio de una computadora o tablet a la hora acordada. Luego de unirte al seminario se puede interactuar, hacer preguntas, y escuchar al orador presentar sus ideas, de la misma manera que se haría en un seminario de frente. Nosotros grabaremos nuestros seminarios para luego compartirlos con todo aquel que no pueda asistir a la hora o fecha acordada.

Para participar necesitaras:

  • Una computadora o Tablet conectada a la web
  • Un altavoz y micrófono, si tu computadora o Tablet no los tiene ya instalados
  • Un correo electrónico y la habilidad de recibir correos
