Zoom Meeting vs Zoom Webinar: What is the difference?
- Zoom Meetings are designed to be a collaborative event with all participants being able to screen share, turn on their video and audio, and see who else is in attendance. Zoom meetings allow 1-300 participants.- Zoom Webinars are designed so that the host and any designated panelists can share their video, audio and screen. Webinars allow view-only attendees. They have the ability to interact via Q&A, chat, and answering polling questions. Zoom webinar can host up to 1000 participants. Malicious attendees do not have a way to share their screen or speak in a webinar.
