Teams Webinar

MS Teams Webinars allows you to have a controlled interactive meeting with up to 1,000 participants. If you have under 300 participants, you should consider a normal Teams Meeting. The difference with normal Teams Meeting is that Webinars are more controlled and that the participants have clearer roles. Also, a Webinar requires attendees to register. Webinars differ from Live Events in the fact that participants are able to interact with the presenter; in Live Events participants are only allowed to listen, watch and participate in a moderated Q&A. With the webinar you are able to track registration for the event.

A webinar is similar to a meeting. However, certain settings like registration are already put in place, unlike in a meeting where you have to do it by yourself.

You cannot repeatedly schedule a webinar. Also, it is not possible to schedule a webinar within a channel.

After The Webinar

After the meeting, the chat remains visible but can no longer be used. If you chose to use Notes and/or the Whiteboard, these are also saved. The Whiteboard can also be exported as a png file after the meeting and shared manually.

Similar to regular meetings, a recording is available for everyone after the meeting is scheduled to end if the meeting was recorded. If the meeting was held in a channel, everyone in the channel can download the recording. After downloading the video, it can be shared manually in your team or by uploading it to something like Brightspace.
