WebEx at the U of S (for teaching)

Description:

ICT at the U of S has now made WebEx available to all faculty and staff on campus.

WebEx is a campus wide, centrally-supported web conferencing solution that greatly enhances productivity in the workplace by providing rich online environments for collaboration.

As a single, university-wide standard for web conferencing, WebEx can be accessed via the Meetings tab in the left-hand navigation menu in PAWS or via a mobile app.

  8. The ability to give employees greater access to administrative service contacts in finance and human resources without having to travel to service locations.
