What is WebEx?

WebEx is an application-sharing and conferencing service that may be used for presentations, demos, training and support and is provided in a cloud-based, hosted format from WebEx Communications, Inc., Santa Clara, CA (

Everything that the presenters see and manipulate on their computers can be viewed by everyone in the conference. Additional controls offer participants the ability to present materials in a collaborative, user-friendly framework. WebEx works well from both Windows and Mac systems and is also available via portable devices such as IPad/IPod and Android-based systems.

URI faculty and staff are offered the use of this system with integration into desktop applications for unlimited meeting collaboration with up to 1000 participants at a time, utilizing both video and computer-based audio. A host account may invite participants (no licenses required) from any outside or internal locations with full collaboration as well as meeting recording capabilities.
