Webex Education Connector: Initial Setup

The Webex Education Connector allows instructors to setup virtual office hours in blocks of time that students can easily schedule from within Brightspace and create live lecture Webex meetings from within Brightspace that students can join directly from the LMS. 

The Education Connector requires a bit of setup for any course you wish to use it in. The instructions below should walk you through the setup process. 

  1. Navigate to an existing module or create a new module. 
  2. Click on "Existing Activities" > "External Learning Tools".
  3. Click on "Webex". 
  4. Now that you are back in your Content, click on the Webex content topic. 
  5. You should now be on the Webex setup screen. 
  6. In the "Choose your features" box, select "Virtual Meetings" and "Office Hours" and click Apply. Leave either of these unchecked if you do not wish to use that feature. You won't see Classroom Collaboration, as we do not have that feature enabled.education connector
  7. Scroll down to "Authorize with LMS" and click the Authorize button. You will see a popup window that asks you to confirm that you want to link your Brightspace account with Webex. education connector
  8. Scroll back up to "Time Zone" and click the Sync button. education connector
  9. Lastly, click on either the Virtual Meetings or Office Hours tab and you will see a button that says "Sign Into Webex Meetings". Click on it and sign in with your Net ID and Webex password. Note: Some instructors login to Webex with their email address but it seems you still need to login to this with your Net ID. education connector
