Engage Students with These Powerful Features

Multimedia Sharing Instructors can share Microsoft PowerPoint presentations, documents, streaming videos, demonstration software, white boards, and Adobe Flash animations, and can pass sharing and annotation privileges to students to encourage participation.

High-Definition Video, Integrated Audio with Telephony, and Voice over IP Conferencing Cisco WebEx Training Center helps keep learners focused and interested with high-definition video of the presenter in the main session, or select full-screen mode to view the active speaker in the main video panel with up to six other participants' video displayed as thumbnails. The video experience includes Active Speaker, which switches the video automatically to focus on the current speaker. All participants also get clear and reliable audio through a telephone bridge or voice over IP (VoIP) and can join through callback or call in using a toll or toll-free number.

Breakout Sessions Instructors can assign participants to virtual breakout rooms for group projects and brainstorming, and then "drop into" breakout sessions to assess progress and facilitate discussion. Students can share presentations and documents, white boards, and applications within their breakout sessions.

Threaded Q&A Instructors can track questions and document responses using threaded Q&A. Panelists can prioritize questions, display answers publicly or privately, or assign the Q&A to a colleague.

Chat Attendees can engage in private or public chat conversations with the instructor, another attendee, or the entire class.

Polls, Attendee Feedback, and Attention Indicator Instructors can collect feedback with one or more polls during a session, and instantly tabulate poll results to share with the class. Students can also "raise their hands"; the system automatically

orders the requests so instructors can answer questions on a first-come basis. Instructors can gauge individual and overall group attentiveness at any point with a visual attention indicator.

Cisco WebEx Hands-On Lab The unique Hands-On Lab feature provides participants with highly secure access to remote PCs for hands-on application learning and practice. Lab sessions can be conducted during live training sessions or on demand.

Integrated Test Engine Instructors can measure class performance by testing students before, during, or after live training sessions, and deliver a variety of test types, including multiple-choice, true-or-false, fill-inthe-blank, and essay. Instructors can take advantage of automated grading, reporting, and SCORM compliance, and store and reuse tests for other sessions.

Record and Playback Instructors can capture and store session recordings for reuse and review using the integrated Network-Based Recording capability. They also can stream recordings within live sessions or post them for students to play back at their convenience. Recordings capture all aspects of the session, including audio, data, video, and annotations.

Registration and Reporting Instructors can simplify time-consuming administrative processes with selfscheduling, registration management, and attendance reporting. They can get extensive reports about attendance, recorded class views, class attentiveness, test results, and more. In addition, instructors can schedule and launch sessions with a single click directly from Microsoft Outlook.

Automated E-Commerce Instructors can monetize live or recorded instruction with self-service registration and payments, set prices for each class, and create coupons.
