Any team on UAB's campus has the ability to book the UAB Webinar account. Below is a helpful chart to help you decide if a Zoom meeting or Zoom webinar is best for your needs: 

  Meeting Webinar    
Description Zoom meetings are ideal for hosting more interactive sessions where you’ll want to have lots of audience participation or break your session into smaller groups. Think of webinars like a virtual lecture hall or auditorium. Webinars are ideal for large audiences or events that are open to the public. Typically, webinar attendees do not interact with one another. Though Zoom provides options for you to get more social with your attendees, your average webinar has one or a few people speaking to an audience.
