What would be a good descriptive name for an event organized in the following way.

  1. The participants are sent a YouTube link to a video containing a commented slideshow.
  2. They watch the video in their leisure time.
  3. A week after that, there is a face-to-face moderated discussion on the topic of the video lecture.

It is not a webinar, it is not a webcast. What is it?

  • Well, 1. and 2. don't represent a single "organized event" because they're done independently and at disparate times. There may be a name for 3., but I'm not sure it would be any more specific or descriptive than your "moderated discussion". In other words, you may be on a wild goose chase. – Dan Bron Dec 4 '14 at 22:19
  • Well, since "webinar" is an invented term, you can invent your own if you wish -- "youtubeushion" perhaps. – Hot Licks Dec 5 '14 at 17:04
  • @HotLicks Or "webture": web + lecture. – user7610 Dec 6 '14 at 11:11

  1. A week after that, there is a face-to-face moderated discussion on the topic of the video lecture.

This could be called a "discussion group" if it occurs with the same participants more than once. In the olden days (ie before YouTube), this is very similar in structure to a Book Club where people were expected to read a certain book before each face-to-face gathering where the book was discussed.

If this is a one-time occurrence (with these particular participants) then its called a seminar.

If the participants were school children, I'd call it a "flipped classroom".
