Web Conferencing (WebEx)

WebEx is an online conferencing tool that enables faculty and staff to meet with students or colleagues from anywhere Internet access is available. It allows users to collaborate with others online, attend or host meetings, and share data, presentations, online demonstrations, etc. Faculty can use WebEx to bring guest speakers into their classrooms, hold virtual office hours, provide one-on-one or group tutorials, participate in committee work and much more. WebEx lectures or meetings can easily be recorded, and the video files can then be uploaded into Blackboard courses. 

How to Access:

To initiate a WebEx meeting, navigate to the CCSU WebEx web site at and log in with your CCSU WebEx account (see below if you do not have an account).

To join a meeting, use the Join Meeting button in the email (or calendar invite) you received. 

WebEx can run completely via a web browser (Chrome is the preferred browser for all computers). On CCSU-owned computers, the latest version of the WebEx Meetings Desktop app may be installed via Software Center (Windows) or Jamf Self-Service (Mac).
