  • VLS sessions use the WebEx Application
  • WebEx Application does not have a concept of Secondary Instructors
  • When a session is launched, the WebEx API is called using admin credentials on behalf of the LMS Instructor


  • This is the expected behavior of the WebEx Application
  • The product is working as designed
  • An enhancement request to allow LMS to have multiple instructors has been submitted and if you wish to track the status you can follow it here.
