WebEx: Best Practices

NOTE: These services depend on high quality bandwidth from end to end, as well as high quality endpoints.  If either end does not have a good Internet connection or modern endpoint device, you may experience a poor quality conference.

General Information

See the following graph for best practices when sharing content in meeting center in the LSU Faculty/Staff WebEx Portal.

1. To save time, open any applications you want to share before the meeting starts.

2. For a maximum amount of bandwith, close any applications that you do not need or that use bandwith, such as instant messaging applications, or programs that receive audio or video from the web.

3. Try not to cover a shared application or web browser with another window on your computer's screen. A crosshatched pattern appears in participatn sharing windows where the other window is covering the shared application or browser.

4. If you want to switch your display between shared software and the meeting window, pause sharing before you return to the meeting window, and then resume sharing once you return to the shared application. If you have more than one monitor, when you share an application or web browser, the participants can see it on whichever monitor you are displaying it.

5. If you move the application or web browser to another monitor, it is still visible to the participants.

6. If you want to share a document, such as a Micorsoft Word or Excel document, you can improve the meeting experience for these participants by using file sharing instead of application sharing.

7. As the presenter, use the page controls at the top of the tab you are sharing to move forward and backward through a document. You can also set a specific time interval before a document automatically advances by going to the View menu and selecting Automatically Advance Pages.
