When you have scheduled tutoring sessions through TracCloud, you will meet with students in your WebEx personal room. Students will be able to access the link to your WebEx personal room by clicking on the link within the TracCloud notification email that they receive when scheduling a session. You can also use your personal room to meet with staff and students outside of TracCloud. This can be achieved by copying the link from your WebEx web app homepage and sharing it by email or chat.
Starting a meeting in your personal room is quick and easy; however, personal room meetings cannot be scheduled in advance and anyone can join the meeting who has received the link from you in the past. People can only meet you in your personal room when you have opened the meeting.
Once you have opened your WebEx personal room, you will have access to a number of features. Watch the following video to learn about using different features within a WebEx meeting.
