The following information is used by CSCU faculty and staff when
hosting a CSCU WebEx meeting. The person hosting the meeting is the
one who schedules the meeting and who is automatically identified as
both the meeting Host and Presenter once they either start or join the
meeting. Meeting attendees may or may not be able to join the meeting
until the person hosting the meeting has joined the meeting - this is
dependent upon the meeting settings.
If you are not hosting the meeting and are just
attending a meeting, refer to the information on the
Attending a Meeting page.
- Create / Log In to a WebEx Host Account
Any CSCU faculty or staff member can host CSCU WebEx meetings.
If you don't already have a WebEx Host account, you will
need one to create your own WebEx meetings.
- If you are from one of the
Community Colleges or System Office:
Click the Log In button
in the top right https://ctedu.webex.com and log in using your NetID and
Password. If you did not already have an account, this
automatically creates one for you. Henceforth you will just
login in order to use WebEx.
- If you are from one of the CSUs or Charter Oak:
Contact your local WebEx administrator for account
- Verify browser plug-in
Test your browser by joining this
test meeting being sure to use the same workstation and browser
you are planning to use to host meetings. You should test your browser
prior to meetings to be sure you will not have problems if updates
occurred that may have changed your browser configuration.
- Host account information
You may be prompted to download/install the Meeting Center plug-in
that is used to attend the meeting if it is not already installed.
If you are using a work computer, you may not have the administrative
privileges to install the plug-in and will have to contact your
local IT to have the WebEx meeting center plug-in installed.
If you have difficulty joining a meeting with one browser, try using
a different browser as often one will work better than another depending
on local browser settings (i.e. Firefox, IE, Chrome).
What you need to know to host a meeting
- The account is established for your
use only, and may not be shared with other individuals at your college.
Only you may convene WebEx meetings, and it will be a violation
of our contract to share your password or account with others.
- You can schedule
an unrestricted number of WebEx sessions. You can have as many meetings
as you require but you cannot host concurrent meetings--each WebEx
host account can only run one meeting at a time. There is no
limit on number of attendees.

tools and options. We offer both short YouTube videos and Getting

Make it easier to schedule meetings: Install WebEx Productivity
WebEx Productivity Tools is used only by those who create
meetings (i.e. host a meeting) - not those attending meetings
and it is not required to be used at all. Having it installed,
makes it easier to create a meeting allowing you to create WebEx
meetings directly from your Outlook calendar (and other
Microsoft products). System Office and some colleges install the
Desktop Productivity Tools on all work computers; others only
install it upon request. Check with your local IT department for
