As many of you know, UW-Whitewater has WebEx setup for all faculty and staff. We have been getting a number of requests for student use of WebEx in conjunction with various classroom activities. Students cannot directly schedule meetings in the WebEx system. However, instructors can schedule the meetings for the students in a way that the instructor will not need to be present to start up the meeting.
The document below will walk through the steps of how to use the “Advanced Scheduler” to schedule a meeting where students can join, and present to their groups without the need for the instructor to be present.
It is important to remember that students should be using the VoIP audio option only. The option to connect to audio over the phone should not be used. If the phone option is used by students, any costs incurred will be billed back to the department.
The tutorial is available at: WebEx: Scheduling Meetings for Students
