Webex Teams (formerly Cisco Spark) is a messaging, online meeting, screen sharing, and whiteboarding tool available to all University of Maryland faculty and staff. It complements the WebEx conferencing tool while adding additional features in a more easy-to-use package. 

Webex Teams provides more personal and timely communication methods, and could improve the productivity of any team or workgroup.
