This blog post from freshspectrum argues that webinars as they are currently used are 'overrated' and therefore it outlines four alternatives that may be used in place of standard webinar presentations.
"Giving a presentation live over the web is overrated, especially if you are not offering live discussion. You’re much better off creating and posting a short and to the point web video. If it’s good enough, discussion will happen, just over time and in the comments section.
Highlighted in this post are four web friendly alternatives to the standard webinar, consider them the next time you plan to present online." (Lysy, 2012)
