Creating and Starting a Zoom Webinar

 

Murray State Faculty now have the ability to request to use the webinar account in Zoom. Zoom Video Webinar allows you to broadcast a Zoom meeting to up to 500 view-only attendees. As the host or a panelist, you can share your screen, video, and audio in a webinar, while attendees can use the chat or question and answer options to interact with the host and panelists.

Before requesting a webinar, please review the Zoom documentation linked below to determine if a webinar is necessary and suitable for your needs, as there is only one webinar for faculty use at MSU. Because of this, please note that use is possible but not guaranteed.
