What is WebEx?

Cisco WebEx Web Conferencing is an easy, cost-effective way to exchange ideas and information online with anyone, anywhere, on any device with an Internet connection – including mobile users. Accelerate decision-making, keep projects on track, and collaborate in real time with integrated voice conferencing, HD video, and content sharing. Deliver presentations, demonstrate applications, share anything on your screen just like you would in person and record the session. Within the meeting, you can “Pass the Ball” so any attendee can control the meeting and share. WebEx offers a powerful feature set for productive, efficient, and highly secure meetings anytime.


Why Use WebEx?

The following are some examples of how WebEx can benefit faculty, staff and students.

    • Get everyone together for a staff meeting even though they are in various locations.
    • Work on a group project when office space or study rooms are unavailable.
    • Provide remote support to on or off campus clients.  
    • Faculty can meet face to face with students of an online class.
    • Include in a meeting or class those who are physically absent.
    • Assist residential students remotely with SafeConnect issues.
    • Talk face to face with a classmate without having to travel to campus or a central location.
    • Practice for an upcoming presentation and watch your recording to improve upon your performance.
    • Bring in a guest lecturer without having to pay for their travel.
