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. Sessions can be recorded and can accommodate up to 1,000 users in a simultaneous single session. The Webex Unified Client now provides chat, phone, video and desktop share. In addition to real-time meeting and sharing computer content over the web, Webex allows you the ability to make and receive calls, check voicemail and chat in one application. Users of GW-managed PCs should go to the software center to download the Webex application.
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 particpate via phone, there is no charge from GW to the individual department for Webex attendees to attend using the 202 area code number.

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.
