What’s the difference between a Zoom meeting and Zoom webinar?2024-02-14T19:01:38-05:00

A standard Zoom meeting is fully interactive and allows all participants the ability to see, speak, hear, and screen-share with each other. A Zoom webinar is a view-only platform where the attendees cannot see each other, and the Host cannot see the attendees. Zoom-type is chosen by the presenter ahead of time.

In either case, participants have the option to text chat to communicate comments or questions.

A Zoom webinar allows for up to 100 attendees, while a Zoom meeting is typically a third of that.
