Cisco WebEx

Accessible through the Canvas learning management system, Cisco Webex offers synchronous, web-based, virtual classroom environments. Additional features include two-way audio and video, text chat, application and desktop sharing, and session recording.  Webex meetings can also be accessed through traditional video conferencing-equipped rooms.

Within Canvas courses, Webex may be used for study sessions, tutorials, office hours, group projects, guest lectures, and even full class sessions. Beyond the classroom, Webex may be used by faculty and staff to conduct meetings, give presentations, or host online webinars.
