About Webinars

What is a Webinar?

A Webinar is a live program offered by the Local Government Education program that you attend using your home or office computer, tablet, or mobile phone.

How Does a Webinar Work?

To register online, follow the link in the program information and complete the registration. Some webinars are free, and others are not.

After registering, you will receive an email with the Zoom connection link to attend the webinar. Usually, the day before the webinar, you will receive a reminder email that includes a PDF attachment of supporting materials. You may either print the supporting materials ahead of time or open the attachment during the webinar to follow along on your device.

On the day of the program, about ten minutes before the program’s start, click on the Zoom link you received, and Zoom will connect you to the webinar.

If you do not have Internet access that allows connection to the webinar, you can connect using your phone. However, depending on your phone carrier, there may be charges associated with using your phone service to connect to the webinar.

Can I access the Webinar Later?

Yes, you can access the webinar using the “Previous LGE Programs” on the LGE website https://localgovernment.extension.wisc.edu/distance-education/about-wislines/.
