What is a Zoom Webinar?

A Zoom webinar allows you to host interactive, large-scale events online for up to 3,000 attendees.

Please note that not all Zoom Webinar features are available with the CSUF Zoom license.

How do I request a Zoom Webinar?

Faculty/Staff: to learn more about webinar setup and functionality, contact IT Help Desk at [email protected] at least three weeks prior to your planned event.

Students who are interested in creating a webinar must ask a faculty/staff sponsor to contact IT Help Desk on their behalf.

How do I get access to schedule Zoom Webinars for my department?

There are a limited number of webinar licenses, so faculty and staff should contact the IT Help Desk at [email protected] to determine how to best meet their needs.

How do I use a Zoom Webinar once it's scheduled?

When your webinar is scheduled, you will receive a notification with the link/URL to join the webinar. You can join the webinar by clicking on the link/URL or, if you have your Zoom desktop client connected to your Outlook, you can click the Join button in the desktop client.
