Video Conferencing (WebEx)

Effective December 5, 2014, IT Services will no longer offer WebEx.  Current WebEx users are encouraged to use BlueJeans, which is provided at no cost to all students and benefits-eligible faculty and staff. (The University WebEx sunset does not affect the WebEx contracts of our healthcare partners. The Stanford Hospital and Clinics and Stanford Children's Health each maintain their own contracts, and will continue to provide WebEx services.)

WebEx license holders should manage their recorded meetings (download or delete them) before December 5th. See the WebEx Retirement page for more information.

Attend video conferences, web conferences, and online meetings in real time with WebEx Meeting Center by Cisco. WebEx Meeting Center for Windows and Macintosh feature HD video and online chat, as well as all of the tools you need to share presentations and desktop applications, write on online whiteboards, and make annotations. With WebEx Mobile on your iOS, Android, BlackBerry, or other mobile device, you can schedule, host, and attend meetings on the go.

Audio capability is integrated into your WebEx meeting, so you can hear and talk to other attendees through VoIP on your computer, land line, or mobile device. You also have the option to record meetings, including audio and screen interactions and documents.  View the Cisco WebEx Meeting Center Product Overview [pdf] for a more complete description of this service.

No license is required to participate in a WebEx session, but each WebEx session host must have his or her own license. WebEx allows license holders to record and store what is displayed on the screen during a WebEx Meeting Center session. See the rates page for more information. Audio stream is included if WebEx integrated audio is used.

Getting started

To get started with WebEx Meeting Center or to learn more about other WebEx services, please submit a HelpSU request. Be sure to include your PTA (project, task, or award account number) when requesting your WebEx account. WebEx at Stanford is by subscription and is charged monthly to your department through iJournal. Online monthly storage rates for recorded meetings may also apply.

Note: Stanford students who wish to use WebEx software and solutions must work with a faculty or staff member who has a billable PTA.
