I’ve been in a TON of Zoom meetings lately, what’s the difference between a ‘webinar’ and a ‘meeting’?
Zoom webinars allow for presentations to hundreds of attendees at one time. You’ll be able see the panelists but your video/audio will be off automatically. Attendees can respond to polls and ask questions, but the chat function is disabled—we’re using the Q&A function instead.
Zoom meeting are more interactive—they allow participants to see and hear each other and hosts can use breakout rooms and chat if desired. Due to recent security concerns regarding Zoom meetings, we’ll encourage presenters to adopt reasonable restrictions to ensure your Zoom experience is fruitful.
