Zoom Web Conferencing - What Does MSU's License Provide?


What does MSU's Zoom license provide?


MSU's Zoom license provides Zoom Pro Meeting ("zoom meetings") and Zoom Webinar 1000 ("webinars"). What is the difference? In general:

  • Zoom meetings are better for interactive settings where most attendees are expected to actively participate
  • Webinars are better for more controlled circumstances where only a small subset of the attendees will present
  • A brief overview of their features follows below. For a full rundown of the differences between the features of each option, please see the Zoom Support Page (link)
