Webex @ NJIT

Webex at NJIThttps://njit.webex.com/

About Webex: Webex is a desktop conferencing system that allows for live, two-way interaction between participants. The service is compatible with: PC, Mac, iPad, iPhones, and Android and Windows phones. Its applications are nearly endless: online office hours, emergency class meetings, project work, remotely bringing a guest speaker into your class, thesis defenses, etc.

How do I connect?: To have a Webex account auto-created, please go to njit.webex.com and click on “Log In” at the upper right corner. Then use your UCID & Password for access. Once the personal room is created you can create a session and forwards the web link to the participants. This can be done by adding the link to Canvas.  All a participant needs to do is to click on the link to enter the session (students do not need an account to participate). 

What hardware is needed?: At a minimum, the host needs a headset/microphone and ideally should also have a webcam. If a participant doesn’t have any of these, they can still communicate via a text chat option. A wired internet connection always works better than Wi­Fi.
