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 an large audience of viewers (up to 300). Webinars allow for viewers to participate by typing questions into a Q&A window, chat, and participate in live polls. Zoom webinars can be hosted from your own computer/workspace OR you may want to consider hosting from a studio environment, depending on the format of your event.


Zoom webinars allow you to require a registration page so that you can collect contact information from participants for future follow-up.

How do I setup a webinar?

A Zoom webinar must be setup by a Brandeis Zoom account administrator. To request a webinar session to be setup for you, please fill out the Brandeis Zoom Webinar Request Form.
