Hi

We are using 0365 and one of our staff wanted to do a one-hour webinar for Continuing Professional Development sessions for all staff.
 
The requirements for the meeting are below:
•      It needs to be a live event
•      There needs to be a question and answer function so that staff can ask questions as the event takes place.
•      The speaker will like to share his screen and access the question and answer.
•      Also is it possible to track the staff that has watched the session live.

I have not used to set up this type of system. Please suggest are there any webinar software that I need to purchase?

Will zoom or teams be any good?

Any help  and suggestions much appreciated

Thanks in advance

Teams Live events can do that, they only lack robust reporting capabilities: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/microsoftteams/teams-live-events/what-are-teams-live-events

And as you are already using O365, it will be free.

I checked with my staff and it will be a 1-hour session and participants would be between 100 - 150.
So basic version of zoom will not be able to achieve this?

I am planning to do the Live event and the person who is going to do the webinar does not work for our organization and has a Gmail account.
If I create a 0365 mail account as Webinar@myorg.uk and pass the login details to him, he can log into teams and once he finishes the webinar, I can disable the account?

Please suggest, if this will work or if there are any other means of achieving this.
