Webinars (remote participants only)

Tampere University and TAMK

Setting up a webinar using Zoom

Tampere University community is using Zoom as a video meeting service, which can be used for organizing video meetings, distance learning and webinars for larger number of participants.

You can hold a webinar as a regular Zoom video meeting with a limited number of participants of 300. It is possible to temporarily increase the number of participants in Zoom video meetings to 500. In addition to this, event organisers can request a webinar license for temporary use (capacity 1000 participants), which brings additional functions for organising a webinar, e.g. pre-registration form and Q&A function. Temporary increase of participants in Zoom video meetings to 500 people and webinar license requests are sent to the IT Helpdesk: it-helpdesk [at] If you organising an event with parallel sessions have a look at Zoom Events instructions.
