Webex Meetings

Cisco Webex Meetings is a multi-functional video and audio conference web application that combines web-based meetings with integrated collaboration tools such as whiteboard, chat, and screen share. Webex also accommodates users who only need telephone conferencing. While hosts need a Webex account to initiate meetings, participants are not required to have an account.

AVAILABLE TO: Faculty | Staff

FUNDED BY: Basic Bundle

Faculty and staff can host meetings with real-time data, application, voice, and video sharing capabilities:

  • Schedule, host, and attend video and audio meetings
  • Connect with video and online chat
  • Share application, documents, video, multimedia files, and web browsers
  • Use online whiteboards and make annotations
  • Talk through your computer, landline, or mobile device
  • Integrate with Outlook and other calendar applications
  • Join on-the-go with your mobile device


When you login for the first time with your UIC NetID and password, your account will be created and you will be able to immediately initiate meetings directly from your computer or mobile device.


Hosts need to have an account. Participants do not require an account to participate and can become presenters once in the meeting.
