CLASSROOM LECTURE CAPTURE & VIDEO CONFERENCING

Each of our supported classrooms are equipped with a webcam with built-in microphone and a variety of installed software on the classroom computer that can be used to capture a lecture, stream your class, or conference in guest speakers.

VIDEO CONFERENCING

The installed webcam can be used with a number of different programs such as Zoom, Google Hangout, Adobe Connect, etc. to facilitate a video conferencing session for distance education or online collaboration.  A few of these applications are already installed on the classroom computer.  If you would like to use a program that is not already installed please let us know.
