Webex Meeting: What is a Webex Meeting?
Webex is a set of tools designed for personal and corporate collaboration.
It’s used to connect to others, typically through the internet, and allows you to communicate with audio, video, text chat, file sharing, whiteboard and other features.
To hold and attend online meetings, collaborate on team projects, and share documents.
To watch and attend presentations, communicate with the presenter, and collaborate with remote participants.
How does it work?
Webex software is delivered over the web as you need it. The first time you attend a meeting, Webex will automatically install on your computer and takes only a few moments. Your local IT or Central IT staff have also been pushing out the needed software to your work machines.
You can use Webex from any computer with an internet connection, and from most smartphones and tablets.
You can schedule a WebEx
meeting ahead of time, or start one spontaneously-personal room- as needed.
If you use Webex to invite someone to a meeting, they will receive an email that allows them to attend. Attendees don't have to have a Webex account. Your invitation includes a link they can click to join you online.
During your meeting, you can video conference, type chat messages, share content, and more.
A typical collaborative meeting is under 25 participants but our institution allows up to 1000 participants in a meeting.
