VC Software

Cisco Webex Teams logo

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/mobile device.

Note: Cisco have re-branded 'Cisco Spark' and replaced it with 'Cisco Webex Teams'.  Cisco have phased out Cisco Spark and we have found that individuals are now experiencing performance issues when using it to attend conferences.  You will need to uninstall Cisco Spark and install Cisco Webex Teams, your login credentials will remain the same as Cisco Spark.

Install

Download Cisco Webex Teams.

To attend a conference you should enter '@uhi.ac.uk' to the end of the dial in code (e.g. 79799@uhi.ac.uk)
