Web Conferencing - Webex Webinars (formerly Webex Events) (COL 615)

Target Audience: McGill instructors, teaching assistants and staff
Prerequisites: Familiarity with Microsoft Outlook Calendar; you must have Cisco Productivity Tools software installed (see Webex (web conferencing) for download instructions)
Duration: 2.5 hours

Description: This training will focus on the procedures for setting up and delivering web-based virtual events through Cisco Webex Webinars (formerly Webex events)

Webex Webinars can be used to host large group events, such as Town Halls, webinars or conferences, where remote participants will be primarily listening, rather than collaborating. Functionality is similar to Webex Meetings, but there are additional features to control participant interaction, such as Q & A, polling, and ability to unmute/mute participant mics.

Webex Webinars also provides a self-registration web form, allowing people both within McGill and externals to register for the event.
