Webex Updates Launched This Week

Webex, one of several tools used for virtual meetings and video conferencing at UW–Madison, has introduced some improvements that make using Webex easier and more intuitive. For example, pressing and holding the spacebar now unmutes a meeting participant temporarily when they want to speak. Audio and video functionality have been enhanced to allow for easier testing of a selected speaker and microphone. DoIT offers more information about the advanced features that have been added to Webex on its IT News page.
