What will you experience: your computer screen will be dominated with a direct-feed PowerPoint for clarity of viewing, plus the voice of the live speaker as the slides automatically advance. A small video window on the side of your screen will show the speaker. The live Q&A session will be simulcast also and you will be able to send questions from your screen options as you wish.
