Northwestern IT is able to provide webinar licenses by request for events up to a capacity of 1000. The request will secure a webinar license for your event and will be provided at least 4 weeks prior to your event date. If the request is made with less than 4 weeks before your event, we will provision the webinar license as soon as possible.
Existing Zoom Meetings can be upgraded to a Webinar as well, in case the event needs have changed or capacity has grown beyond the 300 seat capacity of a meeting.
There are differences between a Zoom webinar and a Zoom Meeting, which you can read more about here. The Zoom webinar capabilities provide:
- Enhanced event registrations
- Enhanced in-meeting controls
- Larger capacity
The request form is specific for one-off events, but we can provide webinar licenses for a recurring series (daily, weekly, monthly, quarterly) if you can indicate those dates, or date range, in the request details and the webinar license will be marked as long-term, to be removed at the end of the event series or date range.
