What is it

WebEx is a video conferencing tool available to all faculty and staff. It works like Skype and Google Hangouts in that you can meet with multiple people by voice, text and or video. With Webex you can meet with individuals or large groups.


Why would you use it

Webex is ideal for meetings with people who are not members of the Linfield community. Participants in a webex meeting do not need an account, making it easy for attendees to participate.
