Video conferencing systems at GW enable instructors to connect their classrooms to lecturers from around the world. Our video conferencing spaces range from small conference room facilities to 50-seat classrooms and to even larger, configurable rooms on the Foggy Bottom and Virginia Science and Technology campuses.
In designing these spaces, Academic Technologies considers lighting, sightlines, and acoustics. Designing video conferencing facilities in this way allows for seamless collaboration between meeting or class participants, as if they were in the same room.
How to Use Video Conferencing
Video conferencing systems require that all participants have a video conferencing system that uses an IP address to establish a call, such as Cisco Telepresence. If the remote site does not have such capability, web conferencing may be the better option, as you can connect over WebEx, Skype, or any other consumer web conferencing tool.
