The advent of the Internet has allowed us to get training in more modalities than ever before. Two methods of distance/online training gaining in popularity are webinars and teleseminars. There are now an incredible number of options available for the person who wants to get more knowledge in a particular subject. In order to get the most benefit out of what is available today, you need a plan of action to get the best chance of finding out about the teleseminars and webinars you have an interest in and still have time to attend them.

1. Determine your favorite method of learning

What is your favorite method of learning? Are you a visual learner? Are you an auditory learner? Do you learn by doing? By understanding how you learn, you will be able to pick the method that is best for you. If you are more of a visual learner, then webinars may be the way for you to participate in your online training. If you are more of an auditory learner, then teleseminars may be the way for you to go when participating in distance or e-learning. If you are able to learn through either modality, then you have more options available to you. Once you have determined your modality, you can search for free training classes based on your preference.

2. Look for teleseminar or webinar training aggregation sites

Now that you are beginning the process to search for these various training classes, you can search the web for individual online seminars, and hope you find them in time before they have already occurred. An easier way to do this would be to find an aggregation source that has a calendar list of teleseminar/webinars events. You will also be able to see the many classes at one time without having to spend a lot of time on the Internet searching for these events. You just have to remember to go back to the site from time to time to keep up to date on the new classes that are available.

3. Join free teleseminar or webinar notification services

When you join a notification service, you will be emailed a list of teleseminars/webinars that are occurring that day. You can join a weekly notification list, or a daily notification list. The benefit with the daily notification list is that most people don't know until the day of or the day before that they can attend an online training class. If you get on a weekly notification list, you may forget about the class you want to take by the time it occurs. The daily notification gives you that last minute reminder.

Using online training to educate yourself in areas that you are interested in is more effective when you are in the loop and can easily find out when a large number of teleseminars are occurring. The best way to do this is to find an aggregator site, or join a notification service that sends you a list of upcoming teleseminars/webinars. There are also some tips that you should be aware of when attending these events to be sure you get the most out of them.
