WebEx – Getting Started for Instructors (Canvas)

WebEx replaces Blackboard Collaborate. It is Cisco’s online collaboration suite, which contains a set of four video-conferencing tools: Training Center, Meeting Center, Event Center, and Support Center.

Training Center and Meeting Center are available within Canvas. We recommend the use of Training Center in Canvas courses. The support materials provided here relate to Training Center in Canvas.
