What is a Zoom Webinar?
Zoom webinars differ from standard Zoom meetings by allowing a user or group to broadcast a meeting or event to a large audience of viewers (up to 500). Webinars allow for viewers to participate by typing questions in a Q&A window, chat, and participate in live polls. Zoom webinars can be hosted from your own computer/workspace OR from a studio environment, hosted through Media Technology Services.
Zoom webinars allow the option to require registration for attendees in order to collect participant contact information.
How do I setup a webinar?
A Zoom webinar can be requested via the Brandeis Zoom Webinar Request Form. By filling out this form, a Brandies Zoom account administrator will setup the event for you and be in touch with details to share with participants.
