Learning that Extends Beyond the Classroom

GW IT supported classrooms are equipped with a classroom computer, microphone, web camera, speakers and display that allow for web conferencing and lecture capture. A limited number of classrooms include a second camera to provide views of both the instructor and students to the remote audience. Other classrooms can display whiteboard images to in-person and virtual audiences.

How to use Web Conferencing

Web conferencing is used to connect with a remote audience using a third-party application. Web conferencing tools require only an Internet connection and that both participants use the same application (e.g., WebEx, Zoom, Blackboard Collaborate)
