The functionality in Zoom Meetings should be enough for most staff and student requirements. However, Zoom Webinar is an additional feature. It is a virtual events option rather than an interactive meeting. Zoom webinar allows for virtual events with up to 10,000 attendees. Virtual events can be large online meetings such as, lectures, conferences, open days and award ceremonies.
