How do I know which webinar type I'm joining?

The webinar confirmation email includes a link to the system requirements page. Depending on the webinar type, you'll be taken to the system check page for a Standard (formerly called "Classic") webinar, Webcast webinar, or Recorded (formerly called "Simulated Live") webinar. You can also reach out to the webinar organizer and ask what type of webinar he or she scheduled.
