The WebEx Event window is similar to a conference room where people attend sessions in person. The Event window tools allow the host to manage the session, while providing the environment where attendees can view shared content and collaborate.


The WebEx Event window has three main areas: menu toolbar, panels, and content viewer.


Menu Toolbar: Allows access to Event Center tools and functions.

Panels: Provides areas for chat, polling, Q&A, participants’ information and video streaming, as well as the session recording tools.

Content Viewer: Displays presentations, documents, video files, whiteboards, and Web content.
