Webex video conferencing

Webex is a suite of modern collaboration tools that help you communicate and share from wherever you are. As the University of Wollongong expands into new regional, metropolitan and international areas, communication and collaboration across distances is becoming increasingly important.  Cisco Webex tools are here to help.  Every user with a UOW account is licensed to use Webex Meetings, Webex Rooms and Webex Teams.

Getting started

Webex Meetings

Allowing you to communicate face to face with people all over the world, Meetings can be used in a web browser or app on your computer, phone or tablet. You can make audio calls, see each other in video, share your screen, and work from anywhere.

An in-room videoconferencing solution, Room Systems include cameras, microphones, speakers, and codecs that amplify the conferencing experience with high quality video and audio suitable for between 2 and 100 participants.
