Student Use of Webex 

If a faculty member, who has an account on montana.webex.com, sends an invite to a student, the student will need to attend as a guest. They SHOULD NOT TRY TO SIGN IN!

This is because most students do not have accounts on montana.webex.com, their accounts are on a different instance (montana-student.webex.com). (Student Employees will have accounts on both)

If a student attempt to sign in to their montana-student.webex.com account to attend a meeting hosted by a user from montana.webex.com, it will not work. Students will probably end up with an "Account Creation Failed" error.

Most students are only able to host meetings on montana-student.webex.com, as this is the instance where they have accounts.  (Student Employees will have accounts on both)
