This study investigated the use of webinars as presentation tools for instructional purposes in English language pre-service teacher education. The main purpose of the study was to explore the effectiveness of online presentations via webinars in comparison to in-class presentations. Thirty-eight pre-service language teachers studying at a public university have participated in this study. Two questionnaires (pre and post webinar use) were administered in order to collect mainly quantitative data. The results of the study showed that the participants found presenting via webinars is less stressful and more difficult when compared with in-class presentations. Furthermore, the participants also believed that they were more confident in delivering webinar presentations; however, a few of them stated that they would ask their students to give presentations in webinar when they themselves become EFL teachers.
