What is a Classic Slides only event?
A Classic Slides only event is a WorkCast presentation type which allows you to upload and attach a PowerPoint slide deck to your event and your presenters to connect via audio.
This is a legacy presentation type and does not allow for webcams or video playback (unless media is embedded into the PowerPoint deck prior to upload).
