Webinars are a great way to share large-scale training sessions to multiple team members across an organisation, it's a good way to share key information in engaging and fun sessions too!

Get started with a Webinar:

  1. Select Webinar from the Studio (Or use the + Icon on the homepage).

2. Fill in the following fields of Step One, the Information step.

  • Webinar Name - the title of the content, searchable by assigned Users.

  • Webinar Summary - a brief description, visible on the content card.

  • Description - providing further detail about the Webinar session and adding any important links.

  • Channels - assign the class to the relevant Channel - usually based on the topics included.

  • Skills - map relevant Skills to your Webinar, so Users will know what Skills they'll gain, when attending.

  • Language - the language the Webinar will be held in. This can be viewed via the Dashboard data tables.

  • Collaborators - Contributors, Managers or Admins who can help you edit the content you're creating.

  • Cost Per Learner - if you want to make the Webinar into premium content, set a cost for Users to spend their Learning Budget towards.

  • Verifier - the subject-matter expert, responsible for checking the content based on the Verification Interval.

3. Set the Date & Time:

  • Live Class Duration - in increments of 30 mins

  • When do bookings close? - how many minutes a User can book a class before it starts.

  • Select Date and Time of Event - set the date and time slot of the course, and the region. You can also set a Recurring Event.

4. Add Resources (Step Three) if needed and Assign your Learners (Step Four).

5. Set up the availability at the Release & Deadline step:

  • Webinar Type:

    • Zoom - integrate with Zoom and enable up to 10000 Users to join a meeting (dependent on the level of your Zoom account subscription).

    • GoToWebinar - integrate with GoToWebinar to host your sessions.

    • HowNow Virtual Classroom - Have up to 1000 Users join the session, with a virtual whiteboard included.

    • Custom Link - Use other virtual classroom links instead (e.g, Google Meets)

4. Add Resources if needed and Assign your Learners.

5. Set up the availability at the Release & Deadline step:

  • Webinar Type:

    • HowNow Virtual Classroom - Have up to 10 Users join the class.

    • Custom Link - Use other virtual classroom links instead (e.g, Google Meets)

  • You can set a maximum allowed bookings per session option, and cancel the session if minimum number of bookings is not reached.

  • One-to-one - best for classes with individual users assigned.

  • Webinar Availability - make it available immediately or schedule its release to your Users.

  • Webinar Deadline - allows you to add a deadline should this be required.

  • Renewal Cycle (Expiry Date) - this is great for compliance content, encouraging Users to re-attend, once the Webinar learning has expired.

6. Once happy with everything, select Save & Publish.

Remember✨: For content that is already published: if you want to schedule it to become available at a later date, you will need to do the following: Unpublish the content > set the scheduled date > click "Publish" in order to (re)publish the content.
