The word webinar is a combination of seminar and web and it could be a presentation, a lecture, a workshop, or other event hosted online. Webinars and virtual events are used to build engagement and relationships, enable hybrid work, empower communication and collaboration with employees working remotely and from home, and inform, demonstrate, and teach.

Ordinary meetings generally include a lot of back and forth among the participants: discussions, sharing, assigning and accepting tasks, making plans, and working towards consensus.

 

Webinars, on the other hand, are more controlled and the participants have clear roles. One or several experts (the presenters) share their ideas or provide training to an audience (the attendees).

Anyone who can schedule a Teams meeting can schedule a webinar. If you’re unable to schedule one, check with your IT admin.

Anyone can register, but the IT admin can restrict registration to people in your org. You can also choose to restrict registration when you schedule the webinar.

After your webinar, create customer journeys and send personalized follow-up emails to your attendees using Microsoft Dynamics 365 Marketing.
