The MBL Secure Web Meeting application is a web conferencing and PC remote control application. Meetings can be set up quickly to share applications running on your desktop with up to 20 other computers. It can also be used to share full control of your computer with remote collaborators or IT Helpdesk staff. All meetings and support sessions are fully encrypted between the conductor and the attendees. When a meeting is created an invitation email will be automatically sent to all attendees with the required information needed to join the secure web meeting. The email sent to all attendees contains the web address to log into the meeting as well as the Meeting ID and password to join in. Meetings can be created dynamically and launched with no scheduling required.
The MBL Secure Web Meeting Administration interface can be accessed at https://vpn.mbl.edu/webmeeting/. This interface is used by the meeting conductor to create new web meetings or to update an existing meeting. This new service is free of charge to the MBL Community. Privileges to use this system can be added to your MBL Account by contacting the MBL IT Helpdesk by phone at extension 7654 or by email at
. You can also submit an online request at http://helpdesk.mbl.edu.
Note: Conductor and Attendees will be required to install the Secure Web Meeting Java Applet onto their computer. This will be done automatically when joining a meeting or running the application for the first time. This process usually takes about 1-2 minutes, so please plan accordingly.
