Before starting a WebEx session, be sure to follow the requirements below.

WebEx Requirements

  1. A good quality webcam. For meetings between staff, a laptop webcam will be fine but not ideal.
  2. A good quality headset that includes headphones and a microphone.
    1. This is the most overlooked, though essential requirement for webex use. If you intend to speak in a presentation, you must use a headset with a microphone unless you are using a special echo canceling room microphone such as those produced by Phoenix or Cisco. A laptop microphone is not an acceptable option and will cause distracting echos and feedback for all users.
  3. A decent internet connection. At least a 3G (2Mbps+) internet connection is required. The college network is ideal.
  4. A quiet, well-lit room.
  5. Log in to WebEx via HUB.rrc.ca. Detailed instructions can be found here: Log on to RRC Webex
