Should you choose a webinar or a webcast?
Webinars are designed to make communication between multiple parties possible. In a webinar, the speaker may lead a presentation for most of the time, but participants are encouraged to ask questions and give feedback as the webinar continues. By contrast, a webcast is designed to distribute content from a single source to thousands of people. This makes a webcast ideal for a company announcement, annual shareholder meeting and e-learning training that must be transmitted to people in many locations at once.
Once you have a clear idea of what your business objectives are, it’s easy to determine whether a webinar or webcast is the right solution for your needs. As you learn more about the different offerings on the market, you’re likely to find that there are key differences between webinar and webcast platforms that make one better than the other for your team.
Choose a webinar instead of a webcast if you:
- Expect a smaller crowd
- Want to encourage audience participation
- Need to share audio and content
A webcast is better than a webinar for your needs if you:
- Want to stream live to a larger crowd
- Won’t be taking live questions or comments during the webcast
- Require support or event services to make the webcast successful
