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 (www.webex.com).
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.
