Webex: Host a Webex Meeting in a Webex-Equipped Room


How do I host a Webex meeting in a Webex-equipped room?


Classrooms of the Future, Webex Meetings, and Webex Teams enables YSU faculty and staff to continue providing students with high impact learning experiences beyond the classroom walls. Webex provides opportunities to connect with researchers and subject matter experts across the world, attend demonstrations or take virtual field trips, and collaborate on group projects in a safe and secure environment from any type of device. 

Our Classrooms of the Future were provided by the generous $1.1 million-dollar donation from Dr. Chander Kohli, prominent local neurosurgeon and former chair of the YSU Board of Trustees, and his wife Karen in memory of their late son Aneal Mohan Kohli.  Dr. Kohli stated, “The Classroom of the Future is here today, and I am proud to be a part of it.”
