*ADDITIONAL INFORMATION RE: MAC USERS & WEBEX:  Webex doesn't work with Firefox. Mac users MUST use Chrome and must download a specific version of the meeting software.
I had problems with online orientation in September, so I early this morning I started to prepare for today's meeting.

I downloaded the mtg software linked from Webex test meeting. When it didn't work,  I called MNSCU support, who referred me to Webex. Their tech had me try Chrome. Still no luck. He then provided a URL to an uninstaller. I had to download it, uninstall, restart, then use the route above. The entire process took nearly 2 hrs. I was much faster on my desktop machine when I got home. Troubleshooting & diagnosis takes a lot of time.

The ONLY way for a Mac user to download the correct meeting software (per Webex support) is:

1. Follow the Webex meeting link Dr. B provided or go to http://www.mnscu.webex.com

 

2. Choose: Meeting Center Tab>Support (L column)>Downloads> choose the correct one for your OS. Install once it downloads.


That got me part way into the meeting, I was stopped and had to do additional steps.

3. Install the Webex Addon. It ONLY works with Chrome. It will not work with Firefox.
4. Enter the meeting. Ta da!

**IF ANY OTHER WEB MEETING SOFTWARE HAS BEEN INSTALLED OR YOU ARE UNSURE - you must UNINSTALL first, then RESTART, then follow the steps above.
