How to Enter the Webinar Room?

Webinar room – is a web page where you hold a webinar, online conference or meeting, and in fact, it is just like a usual classroom. A presenter can show students the additional materials, leave marks on a special interactive whiteboard, use the pointer. Also, the participants can interact with a presenter, ask questions via chat or voice speaker.

After entering the dashboard, you can quickly get to the webinar room by pressing the button Host a webinar now – it is the fastest way that allows you to run the webinar immediately.

In the dashboard in the Webinar room section, you also have the join button under the name of the webinar room.

This room is available to visit at any time unless you specified other settings.

Some settings can be made right in the room: add files, create a test, change the presenter’s settings, password, copy a link to invite participants.

How to Create and Plan a Webinar?

Usually, we need to configure a webinar room before the online event.

The Schedule a webinar button allows you to schedule an event for the future.

You can find your schedule and plan the next webinar in the Webinar schedule section.
