Take Advantage of Webex Services for Remote Teaching and Meetings

CUNY is making Webex services available to all faculty, staff, and students. 

Cisco’s Webex Meetings and Webex Teams platforms will help with remote learning and meetings for the rest of the spring 2020 semester.  

Faculty and staff can go to ConnectCUNY Webex.com  and use their CUNY login credentials (@login.cuny.edu username and password) to begin using Webex Meetings now. 

Student accounts are being created over the weekend.  

Faculty can also use the Webex Education Connector in Blackboard to integrate Webex Meetings within Blackboard for classroom collaboration, online meetings, and virtual office hours for courses. 

CUNY reports that the Webex Education Connector interface, which is provided by a third-party service, is seeing an enormous amount of use from across the country.  The University expects the service will stabilize as the testing is completed.
