Though online meeting terms like web conferencing, webinars and webcasting are often used interchangeably, they are distinctly different tools. Understanding the differences allows you to choose the right product for your use case, whether its communication, collaboration, sales, marketing, training or something truly unique.
Web conferencing and typical online meetings are an interactive method that replicates face-to-face meetings. All attendees of web conferences participate and have an opportunity to speak, offer visual presentations and respond throughout the meeting. Usually these types of meetings should be limited to 10 attendees, otherwise, the meeting/conference can get chaotic.
A webinar is an interactive online seminar or presentation, held by one or several presenters and attended by an audience. Webinars usually follow an agenda and provide auditory and visual access to the information being shared. Typically, the voices of those attending the webinar are muted during the presentation so that the presenter’s message comes across clearly, and then he or she may invite live questions at the end. Webinars are especially powerful marketing tools that allow businesses to make announcements about new products or services, and they are often used as training tools for the introduction of procedures and policies.
