Dear colleagues,

As you know, Webex is now available for all faculty and staff across the University. They can initiate calls with students now, and student-initiated calls are being enabled.

The attached Quick Start guide may be useful to share with your college community. Th guide includes information on using Webex within Blackboard for setting up a collaboration workspace, online meetings and online office hours for courses.

Pleas let other departments at your college know about Webex’s availability, especially your purchasing offices  We have heard that some campus purchasing offices have been asking to purchase Webex for their colleges, and that is unnecessary at this time.

Brian​
