ConnectCUNY Webex License Expires on Aug. 31, 2020

The short-term ConnectCUNY Webex license providing Webex online meeting and Webex Teams capabilities to all CUNY students, faculty, and staff will expire on Monday, Aug. 31, 2020.

Once the license expires on Aug. 31, ConnectCUNY Webex users will not be able to conduct ConnectCUNY Webex calls or retrieve recorded meetings, Webex Teams files, and Webex Teams conversations.

·       Users should save any ConnectCUNY Webex and Webex Teams information to their computer or cloud storage before Aug. 31 if they will require access to it after the ConnectCUNY Webex license expires.

·       Users hosting a one-time or recurring ConnectCUNY Webex meeting scheduled after Aug. 31 must change the online meeting to another audio or video conferencing solution.

Microsoft Office 365 Teams is available to faculty and staff if telephone access is not required, and Zoom is available on most campuses. Blackboard Collaborate is also available to faculty for distance learning and can include telephone access. Users may also have college-specific audio and video conferencing available to them.

·       Participants in a one-time or recurring ConnectCUNY Webex meeting scheduled after Aug. 31 may need to follow up with the meeting host to confirm the meeting and the alternative audio or video-conferencing solution.

·       CUNY support for ConnectCUNY Webex ends on Aug. 31, 2020.
