A teleseminar is a class you take over the telephone. Prior to the teleseminar, you will receive a phone number and participant code. At the time of the call, you call in and enter the participant code. You will be connected to the call, along with the facilitators and all other participants. You might think of it as being a big party line, where 10, 25, 50, 100 or more people are all connected at once.
Typically, teleseminars use a lecture or interview format. That means that you may listen as an expert explains a topic, or a host may interview an expert. Most teleseminars allow you to ask questions, either by asking your question during a question and answer session or by e-mailing a question before or during the teleseminar.
You can call from anywhere in the world–anywhere you have a telephone. Long distance charges typically apply, but these are the standard long distance charges made by your telephone company. There is no surcharge or special charge for using your telephone to access a teleseminar.
Although some teleseminars are free, there may be a charge to “attend” a teleseminar. If there is a charge, you will be advised of the charge when you register, and you will be asked for payment at that time.
Some Important Information You Need to Know…
We suggest that you wear a headset if you have one available. This allows you to take notes or peruse documents more freely.
We have learned from past teleseminars that participants using cell phones or speaker phones during the cause an echo and a large amount of background noise that is extremely distracting during our question and answer sessions. Please use a land line if at all possible.
During lecture portions of the call, all participants except the hosts/facilitators will be muted to keep background noise to a minimum. During question and answer sessions or at other times when callers are not muted, please keep noise down by moving to a quiet area without television or radio, playing children, barking dogs and other household or office sounds.
