Quick Meetings with WebEx Personal Rooms

WebEx can also be used to host virtual office hours to meet with students and colleagues in real-time. A WebEx Personal Room is your private virtual meeting space and is the simplest way to use WebEx. Your Personal Room does not need to be formally scheduled like a traditional WebEx meeting, allowing you to hop in and out when you need to use it for recordings or office hours. Learn more about a Personal Room. 

IMPORTANT: if you use a Personal Room for student advising or any meeting that includes private, protected information, be sure to lock your personal room so only invited people can join your video call. Learn more about locking your personal room here. 

Students can use a computer with a Wi-Fi connection or a mobile device with a data connection to join a WebEx meeting. Keep in mind that not all students may have the equipment or Internet connection to participate in live, face-to-face video. WebEx has an audio call-in feature for the phone, removing the need for an Internet connection. 

Below are instructions to meet in your WebEx Personal Room. 

1) Visit www.elon.edu/webex. Click on Access WebEx. If prompted, enter your domain: elon.webex.com.

2) Click Sign In in the upper-right corner and log in with your Elon email and password. 

3) If you want to start a meeting immediately, click Start Meeting. Otherwise, copy the link to your personal room and share it with anyone you'd like to join you.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

4. Follow the on-screen prompts to configure your computer for WebEx. If you're new to WebEx, you'll be asked to download a small application. 

Other notes: 

If a computer or Wi-Fi isn't available, participants can start and join WebEx meetings via a mobile device. The WebEx mobile app is available for Apple and Android devices and can be downloaded from the Apple or Android app store. Click Sign In and enter your Elon email address. Select Elon.webex.com. 

Additional help on WebEx on a mobile device is available from WebEx.
