I'm part of the OSA student chapter of my university, and we would like
to do webinars to replace the physical seminars we were planning to
organise in the following weeks/months.
Has anyone of you used a webinar platform? Would you suggest one in
particular - possibly for free?

I find that not using a platform at all works well because modern web browsers support peer-to-peer WebRTC video calls. See jitsi.org for info on how to host your own video calls without any intermediary. Or you can just make a connection through jitsi in a couple easy steps:1) start a call on jitsi and give your room a name (e.g. "UAMicroLab"). You can set a password to share with participants, if desired.2) ask people to go to meet.jitsi.org/UAMicrolab at the appropriate time. To use a phone, the free app is needed.The Jitsi org does not carry the video conference traffic, it just connects the users browsers. The connection is peer-to-peer. I haven't used it for groups of more than 10 people, but WebRTC should be quite scalable. Andrew Eisenhawer Eisenhawer TDSSent from my Samsung Galaxy smartphone.
