Cisco Webex Teams is the standard 'Personal VC' software used by The University of the Highlands and Islands. This software can be used by internal and external participants wishing to join our conferences from their PC/Laptop.
Note: Cisco made a decision to re-brand 'Cisco Spark' and as such they have renamed it to 'Cisco Webex Teams'. Cisco Spark is the application that is used on most college machines at the moment with a view to have this updated to Cisco Webex Teams. For now the functionality of Cisco Webex Teams remains the same as Cisco Spark.
