For large meetings where up to 300 participants are expected, Webex Meetings can continue to be used. Just be sure that as Host you read the tips and tricks for managing large numbers of Webex participants.
If you're expecting more than 300 participants, CSIRO's webcast system is the one to use. Webcast is capable of broadcasting to 1000's of people including CSIRO staff and external collaborators, and features:
- Chat: Informal chat between audience members.
- Polling: Respond to polls and view results.
- Q&A: Ask formal questions of the presenters.
Due to the large number of people that attend a typical webcast, IMT offers a greater level of support than regular Webex meetings. If you're interested in exploring the webcast option, please log a job with the IMT Service Desk so that a member of the Webcast team can get in touch.
