Webex Webinars are actually mainly used by our vendors for communicating with us. They are nice platforms where the desire is to provide information with minimal audience participation. But they do not have all of the bells and whistles that other platforms have so if you need some of those features, this may not be the right platform for you. But they are always steady, no drops or other technical issues so they are a good platform for that sort of need.

My personal experience with Webex Webinars has been for the purpose of attending large-scale virtual seminars with a significant number of attendees. The process is simple enough with an email link serving as the invitation and containing instructions on how to join and what to expect. With greater importance on security, Webex Webinars ensures a reliable and secure experience with minimal interruptions. The product is simple to use and is quite reliable. While using the product, I experienced a stable connection and stellar audio quality with only minor dips in video quality.

WebEx Even Center is currently being used across our entire organization and is part of our Cisco Unified Communications effort. WebEx Event Center addresses our need for an online meeting platform as we are a global company with offices in several companies. WebEx is also integrated with our Jabber chat client for on-demand meetings and our LMS for virtual training.

We use Webex Webinars for various purposes in our educational institution. Our main use case is conducting seminars and workshops for students virtually. We also use it to host guest speakers sessions when the speakers can't travel to our institution. Lastly, we use Webex Webinars for providing training to teachers and other faculty. We also use Webex Webinars for streaming in-person sessions virtually to reach a larger audience. Its features like polls, screen sharing, recording etc have expanded our use cases significantly.

This is an innovative platform to motivate more people to participate in events of interest today. I can be certain that our events are much more attractive, and the number of participants is higher every day; this significantly improves the scope and interaction, and most important that the quality is so high in all areas. No matter the distance, it works the same from one country to another, and the language barrier is overcome automatically with the fast live translation.

I'm using WebEx for study purposes. In order to have the ability to communicate with my students to hold lectures or practical classes, I need a single application. This application needs to be easy to use, needs to have the ability to record video meetings, has the ability to share host access, handles up to 100 participants, has "work in groups" mode, polling, and has built-in scheduling tools.

We primarily use the Webex webinar application to plan and run webinars for our end users. A lot of user interaction was missing from our side, and this was causing a lot of churn and revenue loss for us. We wanted to establish a seamless way of connecting with our customers, and Webex webinars were the best choice for this. Webex webinars offer a wide range of interactive elements like live polls, check box answers, etc which easily enables us to interact with our users more during webinar sessions.

We can use it effectively for presentations in our organization. It gives a lot of flexibility and another good part is its reliability. We can easily control access related to things between employees. Loading large presentation materials for a larger audience is only possible with Webex Webinars. We can conduct different kinds of polling between participants and another good part is we have the option to create breakout rooms easily.

Webex Webinars is one of the best webinar platforms that I have come across. We primarily use Webex Webinars to conduct interactive webinar sessions for our potential users and customers. Connecting with users virtually was a really big challenge for us and Webex Webinars have helped us in this regard. We are now able to constantly connect with our users and provide them with more value.

I use it for monthly Board and Commission meetings. I will have to become familiar with the use of practice sessions with is tricky because I don't want "Assign Privileges" and forget to remove them, and attendees are then unable to participate when the session is over. My biggest concern is that this morning I created a practice session and move a panelist to attendee status, and they were still able to hear the session from their phone, which is what I need to know how to prevent from happening again. Can you help? Also, explain how that was possible.

The software works smoothly and it is very easy to manage the audience. I have managed a large audience size up to 50 on Webex. Complete control is there for the user to take up questions one by one with interactive UI. We can share screens at ease. The fact that customers can join from any video device without comprising quality is of great help.

It is one of the best software to organize team meetings & training through Webex. We can invite multiple people through a single link. Its recording quality with a large audience on one platform is awesome. Webex has a good communication platform. easy to share the screen and data with the guest.

I love the power of this product in running meetings. We can easily connect with our team members and organize trade events without any challenge. It is easy to share screens and chat with each other in a secure environment. It is easy to set up and record proceedings of meetings for future reference. I can easily guide my clients on how to use our products from remote areas without meeting them physically.

The event management solutions that the platform has, are effective and very reliable. Through this platform, it's easy to manage multiple project documents, and the conferencing capabilities are excellent. The collaboration through this software is effective and very easy. Reports and multiple files sharing and marketing capabilities are effective.

We use Webex Events to organize events for training and online meetings in our organization. It really helps us in this pandemic period of time since we can organize very important and high-level events in our country. Webex [Events] is used for too many participants, and it can maintain a high-quality video and audio for all participants [at] the same time.

We currently use Webex Events as an internal meeting platform as well as for some private/NDA webinars with partners. For internal meets, we use it primarily for quarterly company updates, whereas for private/NDA webinars, we use the platform to present information or content to partners in our ecosystem. Most recently, we have begun pivoting to MS Teams in an effort to consolidate meeting platforms, but it’s still a back-up option for us on the event any partners don’t use MS Teams/Events.

As a Technology Distributor, we organize large webinars, conferences, and events for our partners. Before the pandemic, we used to do in-person events in our office's auditorium or hotel venues. However, everything changed with Covid, we urged to migrate to online events. We find Webex Events an excellent tool to continue executing these events.

My participation with Webex events is as an administrator and product support engineer. Webex Events is ideal for companies and individuals who want to create large-scale events, which can be invitation-controlled or mass-access events. There are many options to configure an event, among which are the customization of invitation emails and the security that Webex provides to avoid unwanted access
