Collaboration Tools consist of technologies which allow you to web conference with colleagues in remote on-campus or off-campus locations using audio chat, video chat, text chat, file sharing, whiteboard and desktop sharing via the internet.
WebEx works in a similar manner to other consumer-level Collaboration Tools that you may be familiar with (like Skype), but provides IT Services with the capacity to support it in our campus environment. Please know that, consumer-level Collaboration Tools will often *work* on-campus, but unfortunately we cannot support consumer-level tools to the same extent. Please visit this link for basic Skype Instructions.
All faculty and staff now have access to WebEx accounts on their computers via a campus-wide license. A WebEx account allows you control your own web conferences at will, without our setup assistance. We will provide training on how to use WebEx for your web conferences and collaboration purposes. Please see our WebEx instructions for more information.
Contact the ITS Solutions Centre with questions or concerns, or to schedule WebEx training within your area or department.
There is no cost for this service.
