Web conferencing is used to conduct live meetings, training, or presentations via the Internet. In a web conference, each participant sits at his or her own computer and is connected to other participants via the internet. This can be either a downloaded application on each of the attendees' computers or a web-based application where the attendees access the meeting by clicking on a link distributed by e-mail (meeting invitation) to enter the conference.
Physical Conferences can be very expensive, particularly for delegates from rural councils that have to travel long distances & find accommodation, whereas Web Conferences can be virtually free.
