Audio and Web Conferencing

Audio and Web Conferencing

Connect with your colleagues, no matter where everyone is located! Audio and Web Conferencing gives MU departments the ability to conference, collaborate and meet across boundaries so that participants are brought into a meeting from virtually any location.

Internet technology allows real-time, point-to-point communication or multicast communication from one sender to many receivers. Applications suited to audio and web conferencing include meetings with distant participants, training without travelling or presentations delivered from virtually any workstation. The University partners with InterCall to bring audio and web conferencing to MU departments.

To get started with Audio and Web Conferencing through InterCall:

Set up a billing account for your department:

First, the department billing contact sets up a billing account. Contact the InterCall Account Representative. You will receive an InterCall account (Note: Idle account charges will be accrued on per minute accounts with no monthly activity per Intercall’s revised billing policy.) The billing contact will be responsible for approving new accounts for the department.

Department users request an InterCall account:

Next each individual who needs to host an audio or web conference will set up their own InterCall conference owner account. Sign up online. You will receive your account information once you are approved by your department billing contact.

Users may also manage your account online.
