Cisco Webex

What Is It?

Cisco Webex is a multi-functional video and audio conference web application that combines web-based meetings with integrated collaboration tools such as whiteboard, chat, and screen share. Webex also accommodates users who only need telephone conferencing. While hosts need a Webex account to initiate meetings, participants are not required to have an account.


Faculty and staff can host meetings with real-time data, application, voice, and video sharing capabilities:

  • Schedule, host, and attend video and audio meetings
  • Connect with video and online chat
  • Share application, documents, video, multimedia files, and web browsers
  • Use online whiteboards and make annotations
  • Talk through your computer, landline, or mobile device
  • Integrate with Outlook and other calendar applications
  • Join on-the-go with your mobile device


Hosts need to have an account. Participants do not require an account to participate and can become presenters once in the meeting.
