For those who are new to the Wilmette Institute’s Web Talks, they are free and open to the public, but they require you to sign up in advance (check “Web Talks/Webinars” in this issue; or watch for flyers and announcements; or keep checking http://wilmetteinstitute.org and then clicking on “Web Talks”).
The Web Talks use a system that transmits audio and video of presenters, together with PowerPoint slides being used. Audience members can comment on the talks and ask questions by typing them into a “chat” box.
Most of the talks will be held on a Sunday at 2 p.m. Eastern Time (1 p.m. CT; 12 noon MT; 11 a.m. PT; 7 p.m. in the UK.; 8 p.m. in Western Europe).
The one exception in 2016 is the Web Talk schedule for Saturday, March 19, beginning at 12 noon Eastern Time (11 a.m. CT; 10 a.m., MT; 9 a.m. PT; 5 p.m. in the U.K.; 6 p.m. in Western Europe; 9:30 p.m. in India).
After a live Web Talk is given, it is generally posted on the Wilmette Institute’s YouTube channel, usually within 24 hours, where you can access most of the talks from 2015 and 2016.
