Virtual Event Registration & Resources

As the college continues to conduct/offer events virtually to the college community and the public, it is important that we maintain a current record of official college programming.

Having an active list of virtual events helps the college to plan appropriately and also notify you, the event planner, of events that maybe scheduled simultaneously or around the same time, that may affect your attendance

To register a record of your event, please complete and submit the form below.

Virtual Event Registration Form

Only events planned, sponsored and hosted by a college division, department, program and office may be submitted through this form.

Departments and groups must comply with any CCNY & CUNY policies such as branding, data use and accessible content

If your event will be recorded or broadcasted live, please inform your panelist, presenters, guests and participants before the event begins. Also consider placing an appropriate disclaimer on the invitation, registration portal or event confirmation stating as much.

Clients are responsible for secure URLs from approved platforms.

Zoom Resources

Meetings are designed to be a collaborative event with all participants being able to screen share, turn on their video and audio, and see who else is in attendance. Zoom meetings are ideal for hosting more interactive sessions where you’ll want to have lots of audience participation or break your session into smaller groups.

Webinars are designed so that the host and any designated panelists can share their video, audio and screen. Webinars allow view-only attendees. They have the ability to interact via Q&A, Chat, and answering polling questions. The host can also unmute the attendees. Attendees in webinars, cannot rename themselves or use their videos. Think of webinars like a virtual lecture hall or auditorium. Webinars are ideal for large audiences or events that are open to the public. Typically, webinar attendees do not interact with one another. Though Zoom provides options for you to get more social with your attendees, your average webinar has one or a few people speaking to an audience.
