Logo: Webex 10

WebEx went live this past January, but this academic year is when Adobe Connect (UMConnect) is no longer available to use for live web conferencing. For those who used Adobe Connect, WebEx offers many improvements. Among them is:

  • a more interactive option with participants when using "Meeting Center."
  • the ability to be similar to Adobe Connect when using "Training Center."
  • a much improved video quality (automatically switches to active talker at a large size).
  • a much improved audio quality.
  • an easier sharing of presenting capabilities among participants when using "Meeting Center."

For more information, please refer to WebEx: Access to WebEx for the University of Minnesota.
