Watch as author Karen Hyder demonstrates how to use WebEx Training Center to hold effective online meetings with audio, video, and screen sharing capabilities. This course covers how to set up, host, and manage sessions using built-in collaboration tools; how to engage presenters with chat and polling; how to share presentation duties with other participants; and how to use the WebEx recording features to make content available to others at a later date.
Note: Those using Meeting Center will also be able to use this course.
Once you fill in the session and access information, you'll want to make adjustments to the Audio Conference Settings. Scroll down to see the detail. By default, WebEx Audio is set as your option. That means you can use telephone calling or Voice over IP audio. It will depend on what your participants choose to use. The toll-free number assigned to this session will be displayed for participants to use and will be included in the invitation that is sent.
If you have participants who will be joining from other countries, it's important that you also display the global call-in numbers. If you're concerned about noise on the line, click Mute attendees upon entry to be sure that you're not hearing participants join the session. There is an option here for Entry and exit tone set to No Tone. I encourage you to keep that set to the default setting. Otherwise, beeping and announcing names can be a noisy start to your session.
I'll leave that set to No Tone. Audio Conference Settings can be changed if you click the drop-down list arrow to the right. If you choose to use a corporate telephony service, click on Other teleconference service here. Then fill in the phone number that you want your participants to use along with any instructions that they'll need to follow, like pressing star or pound or filling in a PIN number. This information will be displayed to them in the email invitation and when they join the session.
If you prefer not to use telephony, but you'd rather have participants use Voice over IP or computer-based audio only, click Use VoIP only. Participants will need a microphone and speaker or a headset to join this session and participate in the audio. Again, Mute attendees upon entry is a great way to keep things quiet at the beginning of your session. I'll change mine back to WebEx Audio to allow my participants to select either telephone or Voice over IP for their audio choice.
Select the None option if your intention is to dial the participants directly or integrated audio is not important to you.
