UCLA Luskin faculty members and department staff with an interest in hosting a webinar currently have two platforms to consider:
The Luskin School currently has a subscription for a platform called On24, which was used in spring 2020 for several of the virtual Luskin Summit sessions and for Commencement. It will be used for the fall 2020 New Student Orientation and other events during the 2020-21 academic year.
Selected department staff have received training. Interested parties should contact their respective departmental MSOs to receive more information and to connect with the individual department staff member who participated in the On24 training.
This option is for anyone looking to use a platform that is more familiar than On24 but with capabilities beyond the standard Zoom that is used for online classes — or if the audience is expected to be larger than the 100 people that can be handled in a typical UCLA Zoom session. The first step is to connect to Software Central through a dedicated UCLA IT Services portal (two-factor identification required) to get access to Zoom Webinar.
Prices vary by audience size.
Zoom Webinar is only available to purchase on an annual basis, but the cost is prorated depending on the date of purchase. Accounts are tied to an individual’s identity and cannot be shared across a department. An FAU may be needed, so contact with a departmental MSO is also advised.
