Planning Ahead for Wilmette Institute Web Talks
So far, the Wilmette Institute has scheduled eight of its ten Web Talks for 2016. Upcoming talks include: Talks for January (Bahá’u’lláh’s first revelation in the Síyáh-Chál), February (consultation and governance), March (gender equality), and May (the nature of the Manifestation) are now on the Wilmette Institute’s YouTube channel where you and your friends and seekers can enjoy them at any time. Talks for August and December will be added to the list as details become available. 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 and then clicking on “Web Talks”). The Web Talks use a system that transmits audio and video of musical devotionals opening the talks and 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). 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.
