Web Conferencing

Web conferencing is an online solution for holding live meetings, webinars and sharing video. A wired or wireless device and an Internet connection are the only requirements.

All of our web conferencing solutions support both voice and video conferencing, as well as other features, including Q & A, polling, shared annotation, discussions, shared whiteboards, screen sharing and much more. In addition, some of our solutions integrate with our Teaching & Learning spaces.

Zoom

CMU's preferred web conferencing solution, offering screen sharing, Q&A options, and recording functionality. You can host a Zoom meeting instantly, once you've installed the software. You get all of the basic Zoom features, like screen sharing, polling, and meeting recording capability, plus unlimited meeting time with up to 300 people, and all at no charge to you via the Zoom App.

Google Meet

A real-time communication solution through video for up to 50 people. No need to create a Google account or use your personal one. Your Andrew UserID is already set up with Google Workspace for Education, so you can begin using Google Meet immediately to host meetings.

Cisco WebEx

Cisco WebEx is a fee-based service that allows participants to join the conversation through any web browser. Though it works similarly to Zoom, with many of the same great features, there is a monthly fee with CMU's WebEx service.
