Zoom is a cloud-based solution for video and audio conferencing that offers a communication platform combining video conferencing, online meetings, and mobile collaboration. This software can host webinars with video calls involving large numbers of people. In webinars, everyone can have an active role in sharing information in a structured environment.
The addition of Zoom Webinar will have an invaluable impact on online instruction at MSU. The host has more control to moderate conversations, encourage collaboration, and share information, which is ideal for the virtual classroom environment. Students can ask questions live and get immediate feedback from any person in the webinar.
Zoom provides high quality video and audio to efficiently facilitate communication between people across the world—or just across the campus! Centrally-supported Zoom meetings and webinars are available for free for MSU faculty, staff, and students.
Zoom Webinar licenses a capacity of 500 participants. As the host or a panelist, you can share your screen, video, and audio in a webinar and attendees can use the chat or question-and-answer options to interact.
