Join Meetings on the Go: WebEx Web App

Are you often on the go and need to join a WebEx meeting quickly? If so, you are in luck as Tufts has enabled the WebEx web app.

With the new Cisco WebEx web app, you can join WebEx meetings fast, without installing anything on your computer. It's as simple as 1-2-3!

Who can use the WebEx web app?

The WebEx web app functionality is available for anyone who is attending a WebEx meeting. If you are an attendee and you don't need any special privileges like sharing your screen, you can join using the app.

How it works

You are invited to a WebEx meeting and receive an email invitation.

  1. From the email invitation, click the Join WebEx link and in the window that follows enter your name and email address in the requested Information fields.
  2. Click Join by browser.
  3. Once you have entered a meeting, don't forget to connect to audio and to video (if required). Neither feature is automatically connected at the start of a meeting.

NOTE: It is recommended you use this option only with Firefox or Chrome.
