Is there a way to trigger a popup on an end users browser in real time, not just when page loads, sort of like a live push notification but instead a popup window (modal) opens up on the end users end with whatever content I have populated (i.e. survey, video, etc). My site has live webinars so there is an audience there at all times, but I want to push them changing content in thepop up windows as necessary.

- In Joomla, there is a similar concept called keepalive.
JHtml::_('behavior.keepalive') - Keep session alive, for example, while editing or creating an article.
It works simply calling to the site to keep session cookie alive. You can check how it is generated here: libraries/cms/html/behavior.php, function keepalive().
- Alternatively, you can find a plugin for the same feature in JED: KeepaliveLight http://extensions.joomla.org/extensions/core-enhancements/performance/session-management/19814
In your case, instead of simply calling the index.php page, you have to check if there is webinar going on, and show a message in the site.
