How to take an oral exam through Webex

  1. Go to the link provided by your professor for the personal room.

The personal room is a one on one Webex meeting with your professor.

The link usually looks like this: https://unilu.webex.com/meet/[Professor’s Name]

2. Since there are many students taking the oral exam, the meeting is locked only for one person at a time. When you connect to the link when another student is being interviewed you are placed in the lobby and the professor will be notified.

 

 

3. After the oral exam finished for the person before you, the professor will put you at the meeting after letting the other person leave. Please take note, it is the professor who selects which person will enter the meeting so you should stay in the lobby until you will be allowed by your professor.

Troubleshooting

Due to increase in demand globally, there is a large number of connectivity issues as people all over the world are using Webex and that causes heavy traffic to the central server.

There are some solutions you can try but these methods do not guarantee success:

1. Connect to an internet connection via LAN ethernet port and not wireless, as this guarantees you the fastest connection.

2. If you are using the downloaded application on your computer, try to switch by connecting directly from the website of Cisco: http://unilu.webex.com/
