This Fall at UW-Whitewater, faculty and staff WebEx users will notice some changes from the current on-premises version of WebEx. We will be transitioning to a newer and more cost-effective version that is also cloud based. This newer version will allow you to join and schedule meetings from within Desire2Learn. Meetings can also have up to 1,000 participants and compared to the previous on-premises version of WebEx, it has increased recording space. The cloud-hosted version is available at: https://uww.webex.com. The old on-premises version will be discontinued before the Spring 2016 semester.
Students can now schedule and setup meetings for up to 8 participants at https://uwwstudents.webex.com. Students are only able to use computer/VoIP (voice over IP) audio when connecting and are unable to record meetings.
If you have any questions or concerns regarding this, please contact the Learning Technology Center.
