Video Conference Room (BSB 606)
VideoConference with WebEx
You only need an account if you plan on hosting meetings. If interested in creating a WebEx account, go online to https://muscstudents.webex.com.
MUSC employees have access to Cisco’s online meeting system, WebEx. WebEx is cloud and browser based and can accommodate large meetings of up to 1,000 participants, such as town halls. WebEx also offers small meeting centers with up to eight participants.
With fully integrated audio and toll-free set up, WebEx will enhance the current state of online meetings. Other benefits include the capability to record meetings (including video content), integration with Learning Managements Systems (MyQuest and Moodle), and access from mobile devices (Android, iPhone, Blackberry and Windows Phone 8). If using a mobile device to host or attend a meeting through WebEx, you can even share your screen and content.
University users can work with their department/college IT representative for meeting, training and event assistance. The OCIO is still working out the details around the support model for medical center employees. There is a toll-free number available for all meeting hosts or any employee with an MUSC email address to call for live WebEx support. Training videos and an extensive knowledge base library are accessible on WebEx’s support website.
Note: If available, it is best to use computer speakers and microphones when attending meetings. This option is called VoIP, which is short for Voice over Internet Protocol. A camera will also be needed to fully participate in online meetings. The playback of UCF (Universal Communications Format) rich media files requires appropriate players. To view this type of rich media files in the meeting, please check whether you have the players installed on your computer by going to https://musc.webex.com/musc/onstage/systemdiagnosis.php. If your computer does not have speakers, WebEx can call you, or you can call into the teleconference to access the audio. This method does use enterprise telephone system resources.
This WebEx service includes a feature that allows audio and any documents and other materials exchanged or viewed during the session to be recorded. By joining the session, you automatically consent to such recordings. If you do not consent to the recording, discuss your concerns with the meeting host prior to the start of the recording or do not join the session. Please note that any such recordings may be subject to discovery in the event of litigation.
