Getting Started with Video-Conferencing
In this course you'll find a set of resources to help you to get started in using the SUPA video network to attend or deliver lectures.
Sept 2020: Current events mean that students and staff may not be able to join from the usual video conference classrooms. Most SUPA lectures will be made available by Vscene video conference, but arrangements for courses may vary.
Lecturers and Students - Joining remotely: lecturers and students may join SUPA lectures from desktop, laptop or mobile devices. See "Joining remotely from another location".
Attending a lecture from the SUPA rooms
It is possible to join from a SUPA video conference classroom. The rooms are set up to automatically answer the calls. Calls normally start at 5 past the hour.
When attending a lecture you will need to :
- - turn on your projectors or video screens
- - press a button on the desk to switch between the two cameras.
In some rooms you will also need to press 'unmute microphone' on the Vidyo remote control. Please also use mute/unmute if there is a lot of background noise at your location. See 'One page guide' below.
Call not connected?
If your room is not connected to the conference exactly at the expected time, please follow instructions on the 'Connecting and reconnecting guide'. If you see a green calendar entry with the right name and time you may use the Vidyo remote to select it, and join the meeting. If the call does not connect on time, and you don't see the expected calendar entry, please call us immediately.
There are instructions posted in each room and contact numbers for support.
