View the Compare Cisco Webex Meeting Types page on the Cisco support site.

Personal Room

  • A permanent meeting link, unique to you.

  • The quickest way to your personal room type Webex.new into your browser

  • No need to schedule as you can simply send people the link.

  • Personal Room link never changes.

  • Personal Rooms must be started by the host or an alternative host they have allocated.

  • Unlike a standard Webex meeting, if the host wants to join the Personal Room by dialing-in only, they will need to enter their host PIN to open the meeting. Others won’t be able to join until then.

  • Office Hours in Canvas links to your Webex Personal Room and used to schedule and host office hours. The dates and times are available under the Office Hours tab in Canvas. You can select a time where your students can meet with you. Learn how to use the Webex Education Connector to set-up Webex Office Hours.

Standard Webex meeting

  • Each time a Webex meeting is scheduled, it creates a unique URL link to join the meeting.
  • The meeting can be joined by anybody invited whether the host is present or not.

  • Once the scheduled Webex meeting has finished, the link cannot be used again.

  • Virtual Meetings in Canvas links to your online Standard Webex Meetings account and you can schedule a recurring or one-time meeting with your students or other instructors. Learn how to use the Webex Education Connector to set-up Webex Meetings.
