Arrange a webinar

A webinar is an online seminar or lecture. There are different tools you can choose from, depending on the features you need to have access to.

What is a webinar?

A webinar is an online seminar, talk or panel discussion with a large audience. The audience usually doesn’t have to interact with one another.

Webinar tools

You can choose from different tools, depending on which features you need to have access to. In many cases, such as public defences, a regular Zoom meeting is sufficient.

Teams live events and webinars

You can set up a webinar with Microsoft Teams. These features are called "Live event" and "Webinar". These features are included with Microsoft Teams, which you can access through your Microsoft 365 account if employed with KI. Take part in Microsoft's guides as to which kind of meeting is best suited for your needs.

For meetings with up to 300 attendees, a regular Zoom meeting might fit your need. For a public defence, you can change the settings to reduce the risk of distractions.

Tips for safe meetings in Zoom

If neither Teams Live Event/webinar nor a Zoom meeting works, you can purchase a license for Zoom Webinars. Up to 1000 people can join your Zoom webinar. You can purchase the license in the ordering portal Wisum. The license is bound to one user, valid for one year and costs 600 SEK.
