What is the difference between Zapnito’s video panel discussions and a webinar embedded inside or outside Zapnito?
This is a really good question and one that is coming up a lot. Zapnito video panels are setup for having 1:1, 1:2 or up to 20 experts on a call discussing topics. You can share your screen and record these and publish them back out to the Community. Panel Videos run on Zapnito tech and embedded and branded - so fully native to the Community experience. I would assert that Google Hangouts is much closer in approach than Zoom or Go to Meeting - if you were to look at the broad platforms.
Webinars usually broadcast to many people. They can have 5-6 speakers but then many attendees. Zoom, On24 and of course Webex and Go to Meeting are the standards. The problem with these tools is that they are not branded and they become a fragmented experience. We are working with a new tool that can be embedded into the Communities. This helps protect the brand.
Of course, webinars can be recorded and published into the Community. That is the power of our Community platform - is that the community members can have 24/7, 365 days a year access to the Community and Content.
