OIS has been authorized to create Zoom Webinars on behalf of our division. You can read about the difference between a Zoom Meeting and a Zoom Webinar here:


In order to request a meeting, please send an email at least five business days in advance of the event or when you plan to send the Webinar invite out to attendees. Please provide the following information:

  • Date, start time, and end time of the event
  • List of emails of the hosts for the event (hosts will manage the event)
  • List of emails of the panelists for the event (those who should be seen/heard at the event)
  • Indicate if you do NOT want a webinar password (random 6 digit number). We will create the webinar with a password by default.

Note that functionally, hosts and panelists are the same. This means they can share screens, mute/unmute people, etc.

Any OIA personnel wishing to request a webinar can complete this form to submit your request: https://forms.ois.vt.edu/newzoomwebinar/
