Frequently Asked Questions:
- What is a webinar? A webinar is a seminar that is presented over the internet. The presenter(s) will show slides and photos while they are speaking on their topic. There is a chat box to enter your questions. Typically webinars will be ~40 minutes long and followed by a moderated Q&A session, totally 60 minutes. You can count the whole webinar (including any Q&A time) as continuing education credits toward re-certifying as a Wasco County Master Gardener.
