WebEx Communications provides on-demand web conferencing for
online meetings, seminars and collaboration.
UB licenses the meeting center web conferencing software, which
allows users to tap the power of the Internet to hold meetings with
people across town and around the world without leaving your
office. Users may share documents, make presentations and
collaborate with invited attendees including sharing video.
Upon request users are given one 'Host' account to schedule meetings with remote attendees. WebEx can trigger alerts to attendees via email with the meeting date, time and software requirements to participate. Audio capability is provided through Voice over IP (VoIP) or a dial-in phone bridge. VoIP is built into the WebEx software and requires appropriate equipment for each user (microphone, speakers or headphones). The phone bridge must be ordered in advance and requires all users to have a phone. Web cams of up to six participants can be shared at any one time.
Training is offered by request, however, the meeting software is intuitive and easy to use.
Logs will be checked after the conference and the charge will be based on connection time. Testing and trial run connections will not be charged.
Usage for registration based courses will not be charged.
