Academic Technologies provides web and video conferencing services to enable instructors to teach from anywhere and invite guest lecturers into the classroom from around the corner or around the world.
Our web conferencing locations streamline the process of establishing a call for you. Cameras installed in the rooms provide views of both the instructor and students to the remote audience. It is easy to bring in a guest lecturer who lives in another state or country, connect the classroom to students in different countries to establish cross-cultural dialogue, or hold class when you’re out of the area.
How to Use Web Conferencing
Web conferencing is used to connect with a remote audience using a third-party application, such as WebEx. Web conferencing tools require only an Internet connection and that both participants use the same application (e.g., WebEx, Skype, Blackboard Collaborate), so check to see which application your remote audience is using.
