Video/Web Conferences

Overview

ITS provides equipment and training on video and web conferencing using Google Hangouts Meet and Canvas Conferences (Big Blue Button). Equipment can also be reserved to be used with an eternal service like Skype, Go To Meeting, and Zoom. (AU does not have enterprise accounts for services outside of Google and Canvas, so the support that we can provide is limited).

Equipment available to faculty and staff include:

  • Webcams
  • Headsets
  • Web Conferencing Speakerphones
  • 360° Video Conference Camera (Owl)

Additionally, ITS provides training for faculty and staff on how to use the equipment and have a successful video/web conference. Users that are anxious about the conferencing technology can request a trial session with our staff to make sure that they are more comfortable with the conferencing before the actual event.

Audience
