Cisco Webex Education Connector Classroom collaboration is an easy way to message a classmate or student, chat with a group, and share files you're collaborating on.

After adding Webex to your course, Webex will automatically create a Team using the course name (this cannot be edited or changed). All enrolled users in the Blackboard course will be added to the Team.

Enabling Webex Classroom Collaboration will also allow instructors and students to access the Team and its associated spaces using the Webex app↗︎. This means that you can stay connected to class conversations and join virtual class meetings outside of Blackboard.


Create a Space

In Cisco Webex, all your work takes place in spaces where you can send messages, make calls, have video meetings, whiteboard, and share files. Spaces work best for a group of people collaborating on a specific topic or single project. A General space with all the members of your team is available by default. You can create new spaces with multiple people or message someone directly.

  1. The first time you go to the Webex Teams tab from the Webex Education Connector in your course, sign in using your Webex credentials.

  2. Select Create Space to create the first space.

  3. To make additional spaces, go to Webex Teams > Spaces. Select + Create New Space, enter a name for the space, and select Create Space.

Send a Message

When you send a message to a person for the first time in Cisco Webex, you create a conversation just between the two of you. The next time you message that person, your conversation picks up right where you've left it. When you send a message to a space, all the members of that space can see your message.

  1. From the Webex Education Connector in your course, go to Webex Teams > Spaces.

  2. Select the space or the person you want to send a message to.

  3. Write your message and press enter.

Share a File

  2. Select Share to send the file.
