Attending a Meeting
Prior to joining the WebEx meeting, attendees should have received an email containing the meeting information. This email will contain the date and time of the meeting, the meeting number, a meeting password (not always applicable), a URL to connect to the meeting, and the audio information for joining via telephone (WebEx Reserved feature only).
To verify that you can connect to WebEx you can attend a test meeting at http://www.webex.com/test-meeting.html
After clicking on the URL to join your WebEx conference, you will be prompted to enter in your name and University email address to join.
If you haven’t joined a WebEx prior to this point, you will be prompted to install a plugin for your browser. If you’re unable to install this plugin, you may run a temporary application as an alternative option. (Note: The temporary application does not require administrator rights to the computer to run.)
Once you have joined the WebEx, you need to join the audio portion. Choose from the available options to connect to the audio conference.
- Using headphones/headsets vastly improve audio quality such as echo, background noises, etc.
- Muting your microphone when not speaking also helps improve audio quality of the conference.
To leave the WebEx, simply close out of the program.
