What is Video Conferencing?

WebEx is a cloud-based platform for video and audio conferencing, mobile collaboration, and simple online meetings. WebEx's web-based conferencing uses high-quality video and audio and is accessible on MacOS, Windows, iOS and Android mobile devices. Additionally, WebEx can be used with conventional phone lines for audio conferencing. Finally, this online platform can also connect to existing Polycom, LifeSize, and similar devices. 

Examples:

  • Deliver live classes while working remotely
  • Create a virtual classroom
  • Share and collaborate with students using an interactive whiteboard
  • Hold meetings between different course sections
  • Invite an off-campus guest speaker to join the class remotely
  • Upload PowerPoint files
  • Poll participants to elicit questions and guide instruction
  • Create a synchronous session for a student group project
  • Enable critiques of student work by professionals off-site
