Zoom Webinars

Depending on the license, Zoom Video Webinar allows you to broadcast a Zoom meeting to up to 1,000 view-only attendees. As the host or a panelist, you can share your screen, video, and audio in a webinar, while attendees can use the chat or question and answer options to interact with the host and panelists.

Webinars allow the option of preregistration with the option for the host to add custom registration questions, or attendees to join by simply clicking a link at the time of the webinar. Webinars can be held once, can reoccur in a series, or can be the same session held multiple times.

There are several steps to take to host a successful event.

1. Request License and Technical Assistance 
2. Plan the webinar
3. Schedule the Event
4. Managing Attendees and Panelists

Zoom Webinar Considerations

Zoom webinars is a tool for hosting large events. Webinars are designed so that the host and designated panelists can share and view-only attendees can watch the presentation.
