While UW-La Crosse offers limited support of Skype, ooVoo, FaceTime, etc., it's encouraged for our university population to use Cisco Jabber, a standards-based video conferencing solution, or Cisco WebEx. All UWL faculty and staff can have access to these exciting communications tools. Skype for Business is also available through Office 365. Virtual meetings rooms, recording capability as well as document sharing are some of the possibilities using desktop videoconferencing.
You can learn more about desktop videoconferencing by contacting the Eagle Help Desk.
Classroom lecture capture is available at UWL using the MyMedia Lecture Capture System. Hardware (scheduled) lecture capture as well as live-streaming is available in these rooms:
- Centennial 1309, 1400, 3301, 3310, 3313, 3315
- Cowley 100
- Graff 260
- Wing 31, 102, 104
Recordings are scheduled and uploaded to the server remotely. Recordings can be made during a class or on an ad hoc basis. All you need to do is start and stop the recording.
If you are teaching in one of the hardware-equipped rooms and want to use lecture capture, a schedule can be created for you.
If you are teaching in most any classroom on campus you can capture your lecture using the Mediasite Desktop Recorder software solution. Let us know the room you are using and we will verify that it is ready to go. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org and we will provide additional instructions.
