Yes, depending on the level of production you'd like. Teams is great for a quick event (without an external encoder) and includes moderated Q&A. Stream is the right choice if you don't need conversations and/or want to embed it in your SharePoint site. Yammer is the right move for richer conversations, broadcasting the event across your organization, and the video to live within a Yammer group before, during, and after.

Here's how on Stream.

We're also going to have a Live Events in Yammer playbook soon to help you get up and running with hosting these events. Stay tuned (and more to share at SharePoint Conference)! 

 

Thank you for this guidance. Very nicely laid out and much appreciated.
