What is the difference from Webex Meetings?

Unique Webex Training features (not found in Webex Meetings)

  • Distinct roles of Host/instructor and attendees/students
  • Host/instructor has full control over the session 

        ** let me expand a bit on these two since this is a critical difference to understand.

         For example, in Webex Meetings, although host can mute, at certain point,

         one or more participants, participants have control to unmute themselves.

         This is logical in typical meetings. But in trainings with large audience,

          this is not desireable.

          Host/instructor has to control who can speak/present at any time.**

  • Q&A managed and moderated
  • Integrated testing with automatic grading
  • Advanced registration, tracking and reporting
  • Hands-on labs (remote access to lab computers)
  • Breakout sessions for collaborative learning
  • Integration with Learning Management Systems (LMS) via SCORM and XML
  • eCommerce functionality for selling live or recorded classes

 

Features missing from Webex Training (offered in Webex Meetings)

  • personal rooms
  • avatars/profile pictures
  • allow Video endpoints to join (standards-based H323, SIP, Cisco or other vendors, S4B/Lync)

 

Note:

Having said that note that it is fine to use Webex Meetings for your trainings, as long as you are aware of above missing features (especially the full control that instructor has to manage audience).

----------------------------------------------------

 

Important notes for customers in Education Vertical (universities, schools, etc.)

Most schools/universities use a LMS (Learning Management System) like Moodle, Canvas, etc. Although you could use Webex Training service independently of your LMS, there is great benefit to integrate these two. This would offer you automated processes, save valueable time from you IT staff and also allow you to scale.

For more info on LMS integration of the Webex services, please check below post:

LMS integration for Webex Meetings, Webex Trainings, Webex Teams

Webex Education connector - to be added soon

What is the best way to experience Webex Training service?

Ask your Cisco partner or Cisco Account Manager for free trial of the service.

How to order Webex Training?

There are various options to order Webex Training depending on case:

a) if you need one or two named hosts --> Flex Plan Named User Meeting is the best way to go

b) if you need more named hosts, then examine the Flex Plan Enterprise Suite offer.Although this is for 25 named hosts minimum, it makes sense cost wise to examine these even for less than 25 named hosts.  

c) Large number of hosts required ---> Flex Plan Active User Meetings (>40) and Flex Plan Enterprise agreements (all users of your company)

    For details, see this post: Which Webex offers fits my case?
