WebEx, a Colonial Connect service, is available to all GW students, faculty and staff. WebEx is a collaborative meeting tool that allows for real-time video meetings and sharing computer content over the web. Features include multi-point video conferencing and desktop share to help facilitate online meetings or teach a class. Sessions can be recorded and can accommodate up to 500 users in one session.
There is no charge for attending a WebEx meeting when you use your computer and a headset or speakers to participate in the audio portion of the meeting. The meeting host will be charged $0.025 per minute, per attendee who use a long distance number to dial in. The meeting host will be charged $0.06 per minute, per attendee who use a toll-free number to dial in.
