Does Webinar-Based Financial Education Affect Knowledge and Behavior?
Johnson, Carrie L.; Schumacher, Joel B.
Journal of Extension, v54 n1 Article 1RIB2 Feb 2016
Using webinar delivery for Extension financial education programs allows educators to reach a broader range of clientele. It can, however, be difficult to gauge participants' learning of concepts in an online environment. Evaluations of two webinar series, one in Montana and the other in South Dakota, sought to determine the effectiveness of using webinar-based financial education. Online retrospective pre-post and follow-up evaluations of the programs showed that participants increased their knowledge and performed positive financial behaviors as a result of participating.
