Webex is a video conferencing system that is available for all faculty and students to use. It allows you to speak to students or distant colleagues in real time and can be utilized for a variety of different kinds of meetings. On this page, you will find tutorials to help you get started. If you would like to see a live presentation of this material, we routinely offer Webex Training Center and Webex Personal Room sessions via Webex. See the ECE Professional Development Schedule for current offerings.
Access your Webex account for the first time by going to the Webex page, clicking “Sign In” and entering your NSU email address. Your account will be automatically created. To log in to Webex, you will use the same username and password that you use to log in to your computer and other NSU systems. If you have any issues with that process, you can email ECE at firstname.lastname@example.org.
At minimum, ensure that you have a working microphone. If you want to be able to utilize video, you will need a webcam.
Here is a list of resources to help you get started with Webex. First, decide which type of session is best for your needs.
- Training Center is used for large group/whole-class meetings to ensure that you have full control over when others speak and share.
