What is an "On Demand eSeminar"?

An On Demand eSeminar is a recorded presentation, available 24/7 from any computer you choose. When you register for an On Demand eSeminar you can view the entire presentation, or parts of the presentation as many times as you wish. You can stop, go back, and review pieces that you would like to focus on. You can even watch part of the presentation at your office, stop and come back to it later at home to finish.
