This training will focus on the procedures for setting up and delivering web-based virtual events through Cisco Webex events.
Webex Events can be used to host large group events, such as Town Halls, webinars or conferences, where remote participants will be primarily listening, rather than collaborating. Functionality is similar to Webex Meetings, but there are additional features to control participant interaction, such as Q & A, polling, and ability to unmute/mute participant mics.
Webex Events also provides a self-registration web form, allowing people both within McGill and externals to register for the event.
