Webinar overview and capabilities
One of the best ways to add value and engagement to your online program is through live events.
With our Up-and-Comer monthly and annual subscriptions, Ruzuku provides built-in video webinar and teleconference webinar options for all courses you create. Our tools are built directly into your courses, so setting up live events is easy.
You don't need to pay for any additional software, or worry about your students learning a complicated webinar system.
Here's a quick overview of the two types of webinar events you can run on Ruzuku:
- Host a live video broadcast so your participants can see you present live.
- Video streaming allows you to broadcast live directly from your webcam to everyone on the event page.
- You can show slides during the event, and participants can ask questions and communicate in real time via chat.
- Video broadcasts are automatically recorded, and posted back into your course for easy access. (Note: Live chats are not included in the recordings.)
Note: Video broadcasts are limited to 1,500 live participants.
To participate in Ruzuku video webinars, which use WebRTC technology, participants should use browsers functioning with operating systems that support WebRTC (Chrome, Firefox). The Apple-approved Safari browser does not currently support WebRTC technology. This means that students will not be able to access or participate in a Ruzuku video webinar from any device which uses Safari as its only available web browser. This includes iPhones, iPads, and any other iOS mobile devices.
- Host a live teleconference with multiple speakers.
- Our teleconferencing option creates a bridge line your participants can call into.
- Each person who joins the event sees a phone number and pin code.
- Once they’ve dialed in, they’re connected to the audio.
- The instructor can choose to mute and un-mute people throughout the call, and live chat is available as well.
- Slide presentations are also available during a teleconference, and the audio is automatically recorded and posted back to the course. (Note: Live chats are not included in the recordings.)
Note: Teleconferences are limited to 200 live participants.
