WHAT IS A ZOOM WEBINAR?
On Namastream, we call Zoom webinars "broadcast" live-streams. In this type of live-stream, your students are view-only and only the teacher is visible.
You must have a paid Zoom account with the WEBINAR ADD-ON to use the Zoom webinar live-stream. Your participant limit is 100 and the participants are view-only attendees. You can add more participants by purchasing add-ons through Zoom.
(If you do not want the webinar style live-stream and want your participants to be able to participate, you should create a Zoom meeting or group collaborative live-stream. Learn more about Zoom meetings on Namastream here.)
INTEGRATING WITH ZOOM
Before you can set up a Zoom webinar live-stream, you must integrate your Namastream site with your paid Zoom account with the Zoom webinar add-on. How to do this is explained in this article.
