    This plugin will not work with self hosted WebEx, it is only designed for Cisco hosted sites.

    This plugin will only work with Moodle 2.6 and above - it uses features from Moodle that are not in 2.5.

    Also, please contact me for support questions are or open a ticket at

    I need to track the attendance of participants in my project and i am using Moodle 2.6. Is it possible to track the attendance of participants in Webex meeting?
    If yes, how can I do so?

    I just installed this plug-in and I setup my web ex credentials (admin) and I am getting the error: Coding error detected, it must be fixed by a programmer: There are no valid meeting types for this user. Admin must fix. Same as Rupert Martin above....I didn't see a solution though. What do I need to do to fix this?

    Is this plugin compatible with Enterprise Webex accounts (which support both Meeting Centre and Training Centre)?

    Hi Eric, thanks for this plugin. In the documentation you wrote that only Meeting Center and Training Center are currently supported. Unfortunately we are using the Event Center and so I would like to know if you are planning to extend the support also for this meeting type. If you need help I think we can collaborate for the development.

    Hi, the coding errors that pop are not very informative, but can fixed as detailed in the bug tracker. In the plugin settings you must select "Available" or "Available for all users" for either of the meeting types (or both). If you keep that empty and only select the "Meeting password required" you will get a coding error when trying to add the activity. The use of checkboxes there is confusing as it suggests I can choose 1 of the 3 options, whilst I have to choose option 1 or 2 (or both) and then optionally can choose 3 as well. Making this clearer would be great.

    Hello Eric, I have Moodle 3.2.1, when I try to add a webex resource (training center) in a new course I receive error: An error occurred in WebEx while processing XML: 110001 Corresponding MeetingType not found.
    I have a webex training center account. Do you have any idea?
    Thanks a lot, best regards

    Hi Eric,
    Just for clarification, the WebEx admin password should be the WebEx account admin password, correct? I ask because our WebEx admin is not the same as our MOODLE admin and will need to pass this information along. Thank you for your assistance.
