Do you shake hands at the back of the virtual room?
One part of an in-person experience is the content, to be sure.
Another significant part, however, is the interpersonal connection that happens before or after the presentation or class itself.

It doesn’t have to be complicated. Personal email, Twitter, online forums or chat rooms, or even just hanging out in the web conference after the webinar for more questions and discussion.
The question on the table is, “If it’s important to connect with your prospects or conference attendees at an in-person conference, shouldn’t you sometimes make an attempt to make real connections with real people when you’re online, too?”
