Zoom -- Webinars for Large Virtual Meetings or Talks or Lectures
If you login to https://drexel.zoom.us , and click "Webinars," you'll see this line:
"Zoom Video Webinars allow you to easily conduct large online events with
video, audio and screen sharing for up to 100 video participants and 10,000 attendees."
Which aptly describes Zoom Webinars.
Really, any event with more than 50 people,
and especially events with non-Drexel attendees,
are great candidates for Zoom webinars.
Zoom webinars are NOT something to use for Drexel CCI classes, though.
Zoom webinars are ideally suited for larger,
less frequent events where you only want a select few to be able
to talk, share video, or use their webcams,
and the select few are usually the presenters, hosts or co-hosts, or moderators.
To arrange a Zoom webinar, email firstname.lastname@example.org with the following information.
- Date of event
- Start time
- End time (estimated)
- # of participants (estimated or desired)
- Who is speaking?
- Who should be included as co-hosts or moderators?
Include faculty and professional staff
who may answer or moderate chat questions,
or how need to mute/unmute audience microphones,
which are muted in webinars by default.
