UC's New Enterprise Web Conferencing Solution
WebEx is a web-based conferencing tool that allows users the ability to host a variety of events, from small group meetings or virtual office hours, to large webinars or conferences. Participants have the ability to share files, documents, and/or videos, while also accessing a shared whiteboard that can be used for online illustrations. WebEx allows Faculty and staff the ability to host meetings for up to one thousand participants at any time or place. Students will also be granted accounts that allow them to schedule online meetings and collaborate with up to eight other participants at a time.
For your convenience, the LCB Center for Instructional Design has posted a handout and video tutorial on our website that illustrates how faculty, staff, and students can utilize and implement WebEx.
