Using Your Webex “Room” to Meet with Students

  • Meet with individual students
  • Hold office hours
  • Meet with the whole class
  • Record interviews with guest lecturers
  • Meet with colleagues

Within the Webex room attendees can talk, text and view each other. As the host you can share your screen and record the session. For more information about web conferencing, check out the WebEx page in OCE Faculty Guide. And the full WebEx guide on the Linfield Library pages.
