Best Practices

  • Mute your microphone when you're not speaking to help reduce background noise. When you're muted, the microphone icon will turn red with a slash through it.

  • Join the meeting 10 minutes early to ensure you have plenty of time to get everything set up.
  • Turn on your webcam using the button that looks like a camera, if you would like to video conference.

  • In a large video conference meeting or class, raise your hand in WebEx before talking. This allows others to know you have something to say and helps reduce people talking at the same time.
