  • The webinar : it's a scripted presentation, conference, or online workshop. It generally has a more structured format, with a facilitator who shares information and interacts with participants. For example, an online training course on the new functionalities of a software or a workshop on best practices in digital marketing.
  • Video conferencing : it is a group of people who communicate via a video connection. It can be more informal. For example, a team that discusses the progress of a project or collaborates on ideas.

Let's take a closer look at the differences:

  • The objective of a webinar is to inform, train or present specific content to a broad and targeted audience.
  • The objective of a videoconference is often real-time communication for work meetings, informal discussions or collaborations.
  • In terms of format, the webinar is more structured with a main presenter, slides, and scheduled Q&A sessions.
  • Video conferencing can be more casual, with group discussions, spontaneous screen shares, and more informal interactions.
