Host webinars in Microsoft Teams | Deep dive on new presenter and attendee experiences

published 6 months ago by Microsoft Mechanics

Host webinars directly from the Microsoft Teams environment, and offer unique attendee experiences that help tailor the event to participants' needs. Teams is now one single and familiar tool for all your meeting types. Online meetings can be extended to webinars and scale out to a significantly larger audience. As a Teams user, there is no additional expertise required to set up a Team's webinar. It's a rich, interactive, and engaging experience for both presenters and attendees, combining voice, chat, video, and of course, live reactions. Troy Batterberry, Microsoft Teams Vice-President, joins host Jeremy Chapman to show you the set up experience before the event, the presenter and attendee experience during the event, and the organizer experience after the event. Set Up Experience: Easy and customizable. Just hit dropdown menus and select. Host up to a thousand people with full interactivity. If a meeting exceeds one thousand, tens of thousands more participants can join seamlessly using a View Only experience. Presenter & Attendee Experience: PowerPoint Presenter View — Establish better eye contact and connection with the audience. Presenter Mode — Overlay yourself on content, so your attendees feel as if you're speaking directly to them. Promote attendees to speaker — Allow your audience to interact. Give your attendees an engaging experience, and still stay in control of your event. Post Event Experience: See who attended, and how long they joined. Export data from your webinar to build your own custom reports. ► QUICK LINKS: 00:00 - Introduction 01:09 - Audience size 01:47 - Set up experience 03:12 - Attendee experience 04:25 - Presenter View 05:13 - Presenter Mode 06:11 - Promote attendees to speaker 07:02 - Post event experience 07:23 - Wrap up ► Link References: Try it out for yourself at Unfamiliar with Microsoft Mechanics?
