I’m a developer at an online fitness/wellness platform, and we have a few objectives in mind. After reading the docs, I’m not sure about a couple of things, so will really appreciate your input.
What we need:
- One-on-one meetings between an instructor and a student.
- One-to-many stream, where an instructor can stream a fitness class to a bunch of members (thinking this is what a webinar is best for).
What we have:
I’ve already implemented one-on-one by creating a JWT marketplace app. Using the api I create a user (type 1) for each instructor, and then this user can create meetings. All this works great. Please let me know if you think there is a better way to do it. Note that I do not want the user to login to zoom at any point, so everything is done via api.
Here is where I’m having trouble.
Judging from the docs, the same “type 1” user will not be able to create a webinar, because to create a webinar each user needs to be on a pro subscription with webinars addon, correct?
This doesn’t make sense for us from a business standpoint, because we have a lot of instructors but not all of them are active, some only do a class once a month, etc. So it is not profitable to pay the subscription fees for each instructor.
If I were to purchase the webinars license on the main account and then create webinars as the main user for instructors, I believe I will be limited to not having overlapping webinars?
Please let me know if I’m thinking about all of this correctly and if there is a way to create webinars for instructors without having a million subscriptions.
