Besides Adobe Connect, the University of Erfurt also offers various products from Cisco Webex.
Consider your own personal Webex room (where you will be after your first login) as your own conference room.
You will receive an individual link that always stays the same and is easy to remember, so your colleagues will always know where your meetings are taking place. Hold a meeting immediately or copy the URL of the personal room into an e-mail (for Outlook users into an Outlook calendar invitation). Lined up meetings are made easy thanks to personal rooms and you can manage the participants via a lobby.
Today, projects and innovations are created in a team. Exchange messages with your colleagues, research partners or students in specially created areas, share files, images or screenshots and develop creative ideas - together, anytime and anywhere.
Whether research presentation, employee communication, conferences or web seminar - with the Cisco Webex Events you can reach a large group of participants (several thousand). Chat functions and comment tools also allow interactive communication with your participants in real time.
Experience online training in almost the same quality as face-to-face events. Share documents and presentations during the training. Hold seminars for students or employees from geographically distant locations.
What is the possibility of setting up an online consultation hour?
Select Settings in the personal room, activate the automatic lock, which locks the room for all participants
The link of the personal room can be announced for the online consultation hour, a participant always comes into the lobby first and can also inform the owner of the personal room if necessary (receives email)
the owner sees the waiting participants in the lobby in his client and can allow them individually, only then they will join the meeting
any number of participants can be moved between the meeting room and the lobby
Of course, as before, concrete appointments for consultation hours can also be made and a room can be sent to the person concerned with an invitation. In this case, only these participants will be able to enter the room in which the consultation is taking place at that particular time.
Problems when joining a meeting
Make sure that you do not use Internet Explorer or Microsoft Edge as your browser! Please only use current versions of FireFox or Google Chrome.
The host's connection is broken and someone else has been appointed as host. According to which criteria does this happen?
If the meeting host disconnects before the host role is transferred, Webex Meetings reassigns the host role in the following order:
Loggin in as a moderator
Loggin in as a participant
Moderators who are not logged in
Participants who are not logged in
Users who dial in via a device
How can I create a meeting as a host?
You can't use the app to set up the event, but you can register as a host at https://www.webex.com/ with your account data. There you have the possibility to create a meeting.
