Join Online Course with WebEx

Cisco WebEx is used to host the online course sessions. The sessions are active Jan 9, 2018 through April 17, 2018 on Tuesday and Thursday, 3-4 PM Mountain time. The course is also held at BYU but these sessions are not broadcast. There are many options to connect to the WebEx session from a cell phone, computer, video conference system, or audio only.

Most browsers (Firefox, Chrome, Internet Explorer, and others) are compatible with Cisco WebEx. There is an option to view the session from the browser or to install a browser plug-in. If you join the session from the browser, you cannot share your screen with others in the class.

Sometimes the instructor will screen share and other times a student will share their screen to receive help. Participants can also pass control of keyboard and mouse inputs to another in the session. Control is regained by pressing "Esc". The presenter privilege can be passed to anyone on the WebEx session. The presenter must select which screen to share with others.

Manage Microphone

When you have connected to the WebEx session, you will be in the meeting space with many other participants. It is very important to mute your microphone when there are many participants. An administrator can also mute or unmute your microphone. If your microphone is muted by the administrator, the icon next to your name turns red. You can unmute the microphone at any time.

Chat Window

There are chat capabilities within the WebEx app. You can direct a chat message to an individual or else direct the message to everyone in the meeting. The chat window is a good way to make a comment or ask a question, especially if your microphone is not working.
