How do I create a Webex account? | Webex

You can request a Webex account at the  ICT Helpdesk of the ISC. You can use it to log in to the Webex website of the Radboud University: https://ru.webex.com.

Webex Events is suitable for presentations for large groups (up to 1000 participants). If you want to use a video tool where the participants are visible on screen, you can use breakout rooms and you have a group smaller than 300 participants, then we recommend using Zoom. If you have  a group smaller than 150 participants and want to create a simple video session within Brightspace, then we recommend using Virtual Classroom.
