UMKC Information Services is in the process of implementing a campus-wide license for WebEx. All UMKC Users, including faculty, staff, and students, will be able to access their WebEx accounts for free by FS2016.
Cisco WebEx is a software for online video conferencing. Along with conventional telephone conferencing, WebEx allows web-based collaborative sessions to share video, audio, desktop/applications and more. Users may join a session using telephones, computers, or mobile devices.
All UMKC users can now sign up for a WebEx account to schedule online meetings, and invite anyone in the world to join. The capacity of each live session is up to 1000 attendees.
WebEx can be used for:
- Internal staff meetings
- Admissions and recruiting
- Online orientation
- Technical support of faculty/staff/students
- Focus groups and research
