Cisco Webex

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.

FAQ Webex

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.
