Fall 2018 “Teaching with Webex Teams Bootcamp” Begins Next Week!

The LTC’s Fall 2018 “Teaching with Webex Teams Bootcamp” begins next week in McGraw 19A. The three sessions take place on a series of Wednesday afternoons (10/10, 10/17, 10/24) from 3:00 pm to 3:45 pm. Any instructor interested in using Webex Teams is welcome; registrations are encouraged. You do not need to attend all sessions, but session two and session three build upon the knowledge of the first session.

Webex Teams

Wednesday, October 10, 2018: Why Should I Use Webex Teams?

This first session introduces participants to Cisco Webex Teams, and why instructors and students might benefit from incorporating it. Participants will be introduced to the concepts of “Teams” and “Spaces.” Facilitators will provide examples to help participants understand what Webex Teams is (and is not), how Webex Teams works, and the purpose in using Webex Teams.

Wednesday, October 17, 2018: How Do I Use Webex Teams?

This second session provides participants with a hands-on technical training with Cisco Webex Teams. Participants will practice creating “Teams” and “Spaces,” as well using Webex Teams to communicate and collaborate with others.

Wednesday, October 24, 2018: Now What Do I Do With Webex Teams?

This third, and final, session provides participants with a forum to discuss potential applications of Webex Teams in their teaching. Facilitators will provide participants with “best practices” for using Webex Teams based on recent pilots at UW-Whitewater.

Please note: There is no stipend associated with attending the “Teaching with Webex Teams Bootcamp.” However, if you complete all three sessions, you will receive a badge. The “Teaching with Webex Teams Bootcamp” is the same program as Spring 2018’s “Teaching with Spark Bootcamp.”

If you have any questions about the “Teaching with Webex Teams Bootcamp,” or any other LTC training or workshop, feel free to contact the UW-Whitewater Learning Technology Center.

Webex Teams Outage Update – Services Restored

As of this afternoon, Webex Teams messages, spaces, and teams appear to be fully restored. Cisco reports that a few issues may persist for the next day or two, but services are more-or-less fully restored.

You can continue to monitor the updates on Cisco’s website, or reach out to the Learning Technology Center with any questions.

Webex Teams Unscheduled Outage *Update*

As of 7:45 AM this morning, Webex Teams is still not fully restored. Cisco is continuing to work to address the issues that caused the outage. At this time, the LTC still does not have an estimated time for when services will be restored. 

For more information, you can monitor the outage directly from Cisco’s website, or reach out to the Learning Technology Center.

Webex Teams Unscheduled Outage

The Learning Technology Center has been made aware of an unscheduled Cisco Webex Teams service outage today (9/25) that appears to be impacting all users. As of 10:15 AM this morning, the service outage had been impacting users across the UW-Whitewater campus for an indefinite period of time (possibly as early as Monday 9/24 evening). Cisco is working to restore services, but we do not currently have an estimated time in which services will be fully restored. LTC staff will continue to monitor the situation, and provide updates as they come.

For more information, you can monitor the outage directly from Cisco’s website, or reach out to the Learning Technology Center.
