What is it?

The Webex platforms provide a rich audio/video synchronous experience.  Features such as application sharing, file sharing, polling, text chat, and granular permissions allow you to customize your synchronous session to match your learning objectives.

What is its purpose?

When you receive your Webex account, you will gain access to three flavours of Webex.  All Webex options can also be integrated directly into Brightspace:

  • Meetings: Suitable for most use cases, Webex Meetings allows you to easily host an online synchronous session with your students and allow for audio, video, application sharing, polling, text chat and some permission options for controlling your online session.  Defaults to a many-to-many sharing experience.
  • Training: Older interface and application options, but provides some additional features that may be important for your use case.  For example, breakout rooms, audience reactions, threaded Q&A, tighter controls of the permissions within sessions.  Defaults to a leader-follower layout.
  • Events: Designed for webinar style events where your participants are not interacting with your presenters directly and instead are simply consuming the presentation.  Defaults to a leader-follower layout.

Webex supports up to 1000 participants and 24 cameras on screen at one time.
