New integration between Webex and HuskyCT

Webex is a university supported videoconferencing application that allows people to meet and engage virtually.  HuskyCT is the university supported and branded Blackboard learning management system (LMS).  Because these are separate systems, instructors and students had to move between them to send meeting links and session recordings or to complete other common tasks.  ITS received feedback that instructors and students wanted a more streamlined experience when using Webex with online classes.  In response, we have researched and enabled a plugin that provides helpful connections.  Instructors can now schedule Webex meetings from within Blackboard, and session recordings can be automatically posted to their course.  Instructors and students can also schedule and manage office hours more easily within one system.  Additional information is available on the IT Knowledge Base.
