What do you need to get started with hosting or participating in a virtual meeting in Webex? Make sure you have the following.
Get the desktop application and download it to your computer. This application is much more stable than the web-browser version of Webex. Having this will ensure you encounter less issues when using Webex. Go here and download the Webex Meeting application: webex.com/downloads.html
Hosts will need to have audio so participants can hear you. Participants may not need audio depending on the goals of the session. Communication can occur via the chat feature in Webex. Consider the following with audio.
Webcam video is when you want to share video of yourself while you talk. While webcam video is not necessary in order to have a virtual meeting, hosts and participants may need to share their webcam video depending on the goals of the session. Be intentional with the use of webcam video, as it takes up a lot of bandwidth and can create lag-time.
If possible, try to use a desktop plugged into the Ethernet cable rather than a laptop using WiFi. Even if you have a solid WiFi signal, this is often not as stable as a device plugged into the cable that connects you to the internet. If you find that the virtual meetings you host or participate in have a lot of lag, video is slow, or audio is garbled, connection speed may be the problem. If it's not possible to use an Ethernet cable, make sure you have a very strong WiFi signal.
