What is WebEx and how do I make videos with it?

WebEx is used for real-time meetings and seminars enriched with interactive presentations and discussion capabilities. It combines existing learning content with real-time interactivity between presenters and students for engaging collaborative teaching and learning experiences. WebEx presenters can use PowerPoint slides, live and recorded video, Flash animations, live screen-sharing, audio, and two-way text chat to deliver more effective presentations. WebEx can be used to deliver lectures at a distance, connect with guest speakers, hold virtual office hours, and much more. All meetings can be recorded and archived and made available to students who were not able to attend the session. WebEx also works with phones and other mobile devices.
