Webcasts and Virtual Sessions

Below you'll find a list of upcoming SOA webcasts and virtual sessions. Although these are both live events that are offered online, there are a few differences.

  • An SOA virtual session is usually a broadcast of a live SOA event, such as a session during a conference. As a virtual session participant, you'll log in to a special website to attend live via streaming video and audio. A slideshow is usually included, as well. You're encouraged to interact by submitting questions for live response during the session.
  • An SOA webcast also occurs in real-time but it's not part of a larger event, such as a conference. As a webcast participant, you log in to a special website to attend online, listen to the speaker and view a slide presentation. Telephone-based audio is also available. Webcasts usually include a live question and answer period at the end of the presentation.
