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 sharing to help facilitate online meetings or teach a class. Sessions can be recorded and can accommodate up to 1,000 users in a simultaneous single session.
There is no charge for attending a Webex meeting when you use your computer to participate in the meeting. This is the preferred method of participation. If attendees opt to participate via the toll-free dial-in number (1-800 or 1-855) or through the Webex call me/call back feature, the meeting host will be charged the standard contractual rate per minute, per attendee who use this service. There is no charge from GW to the individual department for Webex attendees to attend using the 415 area code number.
Monitoring - Due to circumstances resulting from COVID-19 (coronavirus disease), a historic number of employees are rapidly transitioning to remote work. Webex meetings have never been more vital for staying connected. This is also putting a tremendous strain on regional internet service providers and telephony providers which may result in telephony incidents or service degradation at certain peak times.
