Differences Between Zoom Meeting & Zoom Webinar


Many of you may have used Zoom Meeting before as you “meet” with friends, family, or co-workers over the Internet.  100 Women Who Care MKE Metro West will be using a different version of Zoom called Zoom Webinar which will have some differences:


  1.  Zoom Meeting allows you to interact with all other attendees.  Zoom Webinar is more like a virtual lecture hall where you will not be able to see or hear any of the other attendees nor will they be able to see or hear you.  You come to the Webinar in a listen-only mode for hearing the speakers only.  Likewise, the host and speakers will not be able to see or hear you.  Speaking to you on the Zoom Webinar will be the host and a speaker telling of the impact of our donation to her charity.  The Speaker will be able to share a PowerPoint Presentation which you will see on your screen.

  2. You will be asked to sign in with your name and email address before you enter Zoom Webinar.  

  3. You will be able to use your home or cell phone for audio if you cannot hear the presentation.  Also, if you do not want to use or do not have a computer, iPhone, or iPad, you can use your home or cell phone to listen to the Speaker in audio-only mode.  You will be given a phone number to call in the email  and then the meeting ID which you punch in with a # at the end to gain access to the audio version of the speech.
