Distance education with students.
Meetings with colleagues.
Professional development activities. Two of the rooms are setup with approximately 9-12 seats plus conference tables and white boards. The third room can accommodate up to 30 people. The following items need to be kept in mind when scheduling an event:
Activities should be scheduled between the hours of 8:30 a.m. - 4:30 p.m. In some instances conferences can be supported after hours but this is scheduled based on staff availability.
A laptop computer, document camera, and VCR are available for use with the conference sessions. The requestor must make this need known when requesting a session.
Before you request a session, please contact the remote site you wish to connect with and determine if they have the equipment to support an H.323 or IP-based video conference. We will also need the name, phone number, and/or email address of a technical contact at the remote site. Once we have this information we will do a test call before confirming your request.
