WebEx is an online meeting and collaboration tool that combines desktop sharing, through a web browser, with phone conferencing and video, so everyone sees the same thing while you talk.
WebEx is a service that is not directly provided by ICT but by an external organization. Therefore ICT cannot provide any guarantees of availability or service quality. Rather it is our objective to provide training and assistance for you to acquire the necessary skills and knowledge to be able use WebEx on your own within your classroom.
