Training Locations and Types

  • Attending an Online Training Session
    If you have not attended a Webex online session before, you will need to install the plug-in for your preferred browser (Chrome, Safari, Firefox, Internet Explorer, etc.).

    If you haven’t installed the browser plug-in, you will be able to attend a meeting but not hear the audio or participate with a microphone.

    Get the plug-ins for Webex.

    Go to the plug-ins for Meeting Center. Use the pull-down menu to select either Mac or PC, and then click the Download button.

    Right before the course is scheduled to begin:

    • Open your web browser and navigate to
    • Make sure you are on the Meeting Center tab
    • Browse the Meeting List for the course.
    • Click Join Meeting
    • Type in your name

    For more information about joining a meeting, please read this article.

    For full information on all aspects of Webex please see the online documentation.

  • Chafee 208 is located inside Chafee 217 in the northwest corner (low-rise portion) of the second floor of Chafee.

    Unless otherwise noted, sessions in Chafee 208 do not require registration.  

  • There are several ways to get trained on URI classroom media equipment:

    1. There are online articles with directions–simply search for the room by name, such as Ballentine 115.
    2. Before each semester, Classroom Media Assistance offers group training for all the general assignment classrooms on campus. An email is sent to all instructors listed in the eCampus schedule citing the time and location of training for each room to which the instructor is assigned.
    3. Individual training sessions can be scheduled before the start of the semester by contacting Classroom Media Assistance at 874-4278. Unfortunately, due to the high volume of requests, we really cannot accommodate all requests for the first week of classes.

    Please read the entire article about classroom media training.

  • The Office for the Advancement of Teaching and Learning (ATL) has a number of resources designed to ignite interest and discussion among faculty and staff. Their workshops and conversation sessions combine brief presentations with active discussion and exploration of a topic.

    The list of scheduled conversations is located on the ATL website.
