Conferencing services allow participants to share audio and video content with remote locations.  CoBE staff can hold audio/video conferences with others using a variety of tools.

a. WebEX

WebEx is a virtual conferencing software tool, that lets you collaborate -in real-time -with people for whom it would be impossible, or inconvenient, to gather in one place for a traditional, face-to-face meeting. WebEx is web-based, so there is no software to download and install, or configure.  For video WebEx walkthroughs visit the video walkthrough site, or read the walkthrough guide.
