Zoom Webinar


A Zoom Webinar allows you to broadcast a Zoom meeting with unlimited minutes for up to 1000 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.

Webinars can require pre-registration, with the option for the host to add custom registration questions, or registration can be turned off for attendees and attendees can join by simply clicking a link at the time of the webinar. Webinars can be held once, reoccur in a series, or be the same session held multiple times.

What equipment do I need to use Zoom?

For large group meetings where a single laptop with a camera and microphone headset won’t suffice, these additional peripherals are recommended:

  • USB external microphone
  • USB web camera
  • Tripod
  • Laptop HDMI port or VGA adapter to connect the laptop to a meeting room screen

Where can I source this equipment?


Technical support by IT Services and the IT Service Desk for the use of this service is limited to ensuring accounts are created and maintained and that there is on campus internet connectivity. Ensuring UFV supplied equipment (e.g., laptop camera, microphones, ports, jacks) are in working order to facilitate the Zoom Webinar meetings are also within this scope.
