WebEx

WebEx Meeting Center provides a real-time, collaborative web environment for meetings and learning & teaching events. All University computers are ‘WebEx ready’ so you can schedule and host meetings from your office, and also from any internet enabled computer or mobile device (via the app).

The Moodle plugin allows staff to host WebEx meetings within a Moodle course so that the link is available to enrolled students, and an attendance register is automatically generated. Any non-Moodle users can still access a meeting from an email invitation.

Particpants should visit the WebEx Test Room to check their device well in advance. In particular they should check their device audio as described in this FAQ.
