The Education Instructor session type acts as a meeting template designed for education professionals with host accounts on your site. When a host uses this session type to create a new meeting, event, or training session, the session type features and options apply automatically so they don't have to set them every time. For education (EDU) provisioned Webex sites, the Education Instructor session type is enabled for host accounts by default.

Features

The following features are disabled in the Education Instructor session type to make sure that education professionals can safely manage their classes:

  • Desktop Sharing—Remote Control—Participants can't request remote control of presenter's shared desktop. This way, presenters always maintain control of what they share and prevent anyone from taking control of their computer.

  • Application Sharing—Remote Control—Participants can't request remote control of the application that the presenter is sharing. This way, presenters always maintain control of what they share and prevent anyone from taking control of their application.

  • Recording Client-Side—Meeting hosts can't record meetings on their computer. If the host wants to record the meeting, they can still record in the cloud. This way, the host can manage recordings from their site and share them securely. It also makes sure that hosts don't accidentally misplace or delete the recording.

  • File Transfer—Participants can't transfer files to each other during a meeting. Sharing files can make collaboration easier, but it can also lead to disruptions if the shared files aren't related to the task at hand.
