Cisco WebEx Meeting Center isÂ an online meeting that allows you to virtually meet with other people, without leaving your home or office.Â Webex meetings require a computer with Internet access and an optional separate phone line.
By logging into the meeting via the Internet, you will be able to see the presenter’s computer screen. You can call into a meeting using either your computer or by calling into a conference phone number.
Webex provides the ability to do video conferencing, screen sharing, remote technical support, and file sharing. Sessions can be recorded for later playback for webinars and training.Â The system also uses state of the art distributed computing (cloud) technology so that conference attendees in Australia get a similar experience as those in Europe or North America.Â
