What is Webex?

Webex is a video-conferencing platform for which Marist College owns a license. Webex allows you to engage in live Web conversations with your students using audio, video, and text-based chat features.

Using your Marist account and password will allow you to generate a link that you can share with participants can then follow the web link to join in on a live conversation.

You can access Webex in two different ways:

  1. Visit the web based application from the Marist Webex website.  From there, you can sign in and create future meeting links.
  2. Integrate Webex into your iLearn site. If you use iLearn extensively, you can follow Digital Education team’s instructions for creating a direct link for Webex that directly integrates into your iLearn course site.

Shifting Your Course to Online:

Option 1: Run Your Class Live With Webex

Option 2: Pre-Record Your Lectures

 

Option 1: Run Your Class Live With Webex

This option works especially well for small discussion-based classes, though it’s also effective for large lectures, especially if you have a moderator.

Option 2: Pre-Record Your Lectures

If you are not comfortable presenting live, another good option is to pre-record any lecture material and upload it to iLearn
