Use Annotation Tools

WebEx includes Annotation Tools which presenters can use to enhance the effectiveness of their discussion. These same tolls can be made available to participants. The meeting Host grants access to the tools by selecting an individual (or the group icon) listed in the Participant Panel using a right mouse click and then modifying the privileges to include Annotate.
