Web Conferencing (WebEx & Meetings Tool, and Zoom)

  • September 7, 2017
    2:00 pm - 3:30 pm

Web conferencing tools help foster advanced communication and collaboration activities across many course offerings and designs. Through the use on synchronous tools like WebEx and Big Blue Button (the meetings tool in USAonline) you can implement sessions with your students to improve learning and engagement. Results from a case study at Georgetown University showed that the introduction of Web Conferencing into classes there that even encouraged students to become presenters and instructors in these sessions had higher levels of comprehension and active learning. In this workshop, you will learn how to use WebEx and the Meetings tool in USAonline to create and manage synchronous sessions to maximize the experience within your course for your students.
