Pacific Technology announces implementation of WebEx desktop web conferencing tool

Dec 14, 2015

Pacific Technology Services is pleased to announce the implementation of the desktop web conferencing tool, WebEx.

With WebEx, faculty can provide rich online environments for learning and collaboration that engage students beyond the boundaries of the traditional classroom. Students can participate in class discussion, see class content and present material from any compatible computer or mobile device. Faculty can establish virtual office hours, bring in guest speakers and attend administrative meetings remotely. In addition, WebEx enhances collaboration between the three cities by providing a virtual meeting platform for staff and faculty regardless of campus location.

Many staff and faculty have been leveraging WebEx during the pilot phase. The tool will be available for use by all full-time faculty and staff on Jan. 11, 2016. WebEx will be made available to adjuncts by request. Students will be able to host meetings using WebEx by Jan. 18, 2016.  

To learn more about WebEx, visit go.Pacific.edu/WebExHelp.

  • Wednesday, Dec. 16 from 1:30 p.m. to 3 p.m. in Library Classroom 1, Stockton Campus
