Anyone within the UM System can request access to a shared Zoom Webinar license for events. These webinar licenses are assigned to a user for a specific date on a first-come, first-served basis. Webinar licenses allow up to 5,000 attendees and have additional audience moderation options. There is no charge for this service.

Access to a webinar is beneficial for users who:

  • expect an audience larger than 300 people
  • only need to present information and not interact with attendees
  • are in need of registration support

Webinars can require preregistration, with the option for the host to add custom registration questions, or registration can be turned off for attendees to join by simply clicking a link at the time of the webinar.
