Cisco Webex is UNLV’s web conferencing and virtual meeting tool, which is available for all faculty and staff. Webex allows you to meet with colleagues or students anywhere in the world, with just an internet connection, web browser or application, camera, and microphone. In addition to virtual online meetings, screen sharing tools, instant messaging, and file/presentation sharing are also available, whether you are meeting with one person, or teaching a synchronous, online course.

Among its many functions, Webex offers these common features:

  • Canvas integration: once implemented, meetings can be scheduled and started directly from your courses
  • Calendar integration: once implemented, schedule your meetings directly from your Google Calendar, without having to go to the Webex site
  • Easily give or take presenter control during your meeting
  • Share content with your attendees
  • Host virtual office hours: post a link to your virtual personal room “lobby”. Students or other attendees can click your link and wait in the virtual lobby until you admit them
  • Record your meeting and share with anyone who couldn’t attend

All faculty and staff with Webex accounts will have access to the Meeting Center and Training Center by default. See below for a brief synopsis of each Webex center to help determine which center will best suit your needs.
