Webex Meetings is an online meeting solution that can be used to communicate via audio, video, chat, and document/screen sharing. Webex Meetings allows collaboration virtually on computers and mobile devices in real time. ITS provides Webex Meetings to all faculty, staff and students to create their own online meetings, online office hours and synchronous class time. Anyone can join a meeting if invited or if they receive the details for the meeting, with or without an account. However, you need an account if you want to create online meetings.
To get started you must activate your Tri-C Webex account, you only need to do this once. Faculty and staff go to the Webex for Faculty and Staff page to activate your account. Students go to the Webex for Students page to activate your account.
To host or attend Webex meetings from your mobile device, download and install the Cisco Webex Meetings app for iOS and Android, which can be found in the App Store and Play Store. You only need to sign-in to the mobile app if you will be managing your Webex account from your phone. You do not need to sign-in if you are only using the app to join existing meetings.
