You'll also be able to see other attendees' questions and the tutor's response, giving you an insight into aspects of the topic you might not otherwise have considered.

The tutor and other attendees won't be able to see you, so there's no need to worry about having a webcam set up (or changing out of your work-from-home pyjamas!)
