When you have setup the webex connection/ integration from the Advanced Configurations page > Third Party Integrations tab > Webex (Figure 3), and selected the using a classter classroom connection type, you will need to create a classroom and then a session on Classter.

Once you reach the creation page, you can see that the fields are split into three main sections.

  • Main Data section: Here you need to add a Short Description of the Classroom, the Main description of the classroom, which level this classroom will be used for e.g Middle school, the Room Type e.g class room and the Timetable category this classroom will appear in (if applicable to your institution). You can add a color to this classroom if you want and define the number of students that are allowed in the classroom.
  • Other Data section: Here you only need to fill in that this is a Webex classroom in the Room location field. The rest of the fields are irrelevant in our case.
  • Third Party Integrations section: here is where we essentially make this classroom a webex classroom. Select Webex from the “Provider” dropdown list and in the two following fields enter the Webex username and password of one of your available accounts.
  • Finally Click on the “Save” button to save your new Webex Classroom!
