My Seminar is Online, What Now?

Research seminars can be presented online. In order to effectively communicate your sessions to numerous populations, we recommend one of the following:

  1. Utilizing Zoom Registration and placing the Zoom registration link in the ‘External Registration’ field of your LeBow event.
  2. Utilizing the registration system and including the Zoom session in the registration confirmation email. (Not sure how to do that? Learn how to update your registration confirmation email.). You can also communicate to populations outside of the Drexel community by sending them the event and including a direct link to the Zoom session with its passcode.

For more information on Zoom and its capabilities, refer to LeBow Tech’s comprehensive Zoom knowledge base.
