WebEx Meetings (Premium) supports up to 1,000 participants.
WebEx is a web conferencing tool designed for real time online meetings, webinars, training, demos, and presentations.It allows you to communicate with meeting participants using audio and video, share your computer desktop and presentations with them, make recordings of your web conferences, and more. It works on Windows, Mac, Linux, and mobile platforms.
To be cost effective and efficient, IEEE MGA offers WebEx service to Geographic Sections in two different ways. Sections that have a need for 3-5 online meetings a year, can request a WebEx meeting to be setup for them. IEEE MGA staff will process the request and provide WebEx session information within 3 days.
Request a WebEx session at http://site.ieee.org/vtools/tools-ok/webex/webex-registration/
Sections that have a need for more than 5 online meetings a year can request a dedicated WebEx account by an sending email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Tutorials are available at: http://www.cisco.com/c/dam/en/us/td/docs/collaboration/meeting_center/wbs298/wx_mc_host_ug.pdf
WebEx Events and WebEx Training rooms are also available on request by sending an email to email@example.com.
We have been using Google Meet with great success. And, it comes with your IEEE.org email account. There is no charge for using this service.
– Attendees do not need gmail accounts.
This is a great alternative to WebEx and everyone with an ieee.org account has access.
WebEx Recorder is a simple standalone recorder of screen activity and audio for Windows based computers. It can be used to make an offline recording of a presentation, demo, tutorial, etc. Recording can be played using WebEx Player.
Download recorder and player from https://www.webex.co.in/support/play-webex-recording.html. For help press “F1” after the program is launched.
