Collaboration Tools: Microsoft Teams - Webinars (Live Online using MS Teams) new Finished 09:30 - 11:30 UIS Online Microsoft Teams 4

Are you organising an event with a larger audience, and considering using Teams? Webinars are ideal for business and educational purposes, such as training sessions, demonstrations, virtual conferences, and academic lectures.

Confused over the various types of webinars? You may be aware of Live Events (soon to be updated to Town Halls) as an alternative to this course on Webinars; Live Events have a more structured delivery style and require an individual to take the role of producer to advance the next slide. Webinars are similar to a Teams meeting and are more intuitive to use.

Teams Webinars typically involve a combination of audio and visual elements where the presenters share their video feed, give presentations, or other multimedia content, while participants can ask questions, provide feedback, and participate in discussions through chat, Q&A or other interactive features such as breakout rooms.

This course will give you the opportunity to learn how to mitigate technical problems on the day, and to practise managing your content before you go live! Both organisers and presenters will find this course useful.

The course is taught using Microsoft Teams and you must have the Teams desktop installed on your computer to participate.

Please Note: When you book on this course, on your booking confirmation page, click on Add to Calendar to start the process to import the course appointment into your calendar.
