A great way to get more from your next meeting is to record it.
By recording you can focus on the interactions and worry less about taking notes. You can also share the recording with those who couldn’t make the meeting. You can even intentionally record a session to share publicly on your website or via social media.
Here’s what you need to know.
You start with by being a WebEx Meetings host. You can use a free Basic account (you will record using VoIP via your computer) or an account which will give you telephone access.
Schedule a meeting.
Title it accordingly -- you will be sharing this recording and the name will stick -- so name your meeting in a way that allows the future recording to make sense. If you start an “instant meeting” be sure to rename it before you hit start.
Turn off interruptions.
That includes email, IM, chat and anything else that might pop-up on your desktop while you are recording. Load the files you want to access, turn on “Share Desktop” and make sure everything looks good. If you are using your webcam, turn it on and make any adjustments. Also do a sound check to check recording levels (for both web cams and mics, you’ll use your computer controls for adjustments).
When you are done, press stop and then you can end the meeting. Depending on the length and complexity of your recording (how much you shared), it may take awhile for your recording to process and post.
Access your file in your Meeting Spaces.
Return to WebEx Meetings and visit the meeting space for your recorded meeting. The recording will be posted there. You can watch from there or visit your File Library. There you can download the recording or click on the link to get a URL you can share anywhere.
