Hi all,

 

what is Cisco Webex Education Connector:

Cisco Webex Education Connector is a Learning Tools Interoperability (LTI) integration that natively integrates Webex Meetings/Trainings/Events and Webex Teams into the Learning Management System (LMS) environment to bring the best classroom and project collaboration experience to where teachers plan and students learn. 

Webex Education Connector works with Webex Teams and with Webex Meetings, Webex Events, and Webex Training. It integrates with Canvas by Instructure, Blackboard Learn, Moodle, Brightspace by D2L, Sakai, and more.

 

With Cisco Educationn connector, you can: 

  • Schedule meetings and facilitate collaboration within your learning management system.
  • Integrate Webex Teams and Webex meetings into your learning management system.

  • Schedule Webex meetings, events, training sessions, or team meetings and invite all class members.

  • Share office hours and view analytics, including attendance.

  • Create a team or space within Webex Teams so that class members can communicate, share files, receive updates, and see links to meeting recordings or upcoming meetings.

 

Why is this important? 

As explained in below post: 

LMS integration for Webex Meetings, Webex Trainings, Webex Teams

LMS integration is key to offer succesful collab services to your users (teachers, professors,students)

Can education connector  work with on-prem ?

Could you please tell me the details about Moodle site domain?

Hi,

 

meaning CWMS (Cisco Webex Meetings Server)? 

No, as far as I know. This is for cloud Webex.

For CWMS, I guess CWMS APIs are there if you want to try to develop some kind of integration. Please check with CWMS team on this

Hi,

 

Is it possible to install the Webex plugin for Moodle with a a premium account (24$/m)?

 

I've been trying to configure it from a free Webex account but it's been impossible

 

Thanks

Hi Alkiviadis,

 

Sorry to confuse you. I'm talking about LMS.

Can education connector connect to on-prem LMS?

If yes, I want to know what "Moodle(or LMS) site domain" on the form.

Hi  Shinichi,

 

unfortunately don't have this level of info. Better check this with proper team- will send you a unicast message.

Hi BorjaH,

 

I don't think that Webex Education connector works with free webex accounts or even for subscriptions via website.  Most probably you need subscriptions ordered from partners from Cisco GPL. But since I am not the owner of this product, please crosscheck this with your local Collab specialist.

I failed at this (I think last) step. Does anyone know how to fix the problem?

Moodle version: 3.5.1

Moodle 3.7 - I get the same error as shown above.  @mkaysi - did you get a fix for this in the end?

Cheers!

Richard

@azoupas  I want to know if a solution to the problem of @mkaysi and @mkaysi. I have the same problem.

hi, sorry for late reply - thought I had replied in the past but probably missed sending it. 

For such issues, please coordinate with your Cisco account team and utilise Cisco TAC for troubleshouting.

I got a fix for this in the end - the connector requires the VLE URL to use HTTPS and I was only using HTTP.

@RichardAtkinThanks for the update and I am sorry I couldn't write earlier. I had to solve many technical problems since the beginning of the fall semester. I haven't had a chance to look at this yet. Currently, we are using another software but I keep paying for Webex just to give this a try. I'll try it and give feedback (hopefully soon) :)

Hi, 

 

the Cisco Webex Education Connector doesn't seem to work well with the Webex smartphone app (Android). 

 

Joining an event from within Moodle is not possible without the event password and users are not automatically authenticated. 

 

I'd love to see further development here.
