Video & Web Conferencing
The Language Center has three small rooms with video conferencing equipment installed: Jones 105A, 110D and 135B. Video conferencing equipment in each room consists of a Cisco SX-10 video codec with external microphone and large monitor. These rooms can be used to connect to other locations with standard video conferencing equipment or to other users through web applications like WebEx or Zoom.
The equipment in these rooms are primarily used by the Big Ten Academic Alliance (BTAA) CourseShare program to connect students to language programs offered through other Universities in the Big Ten.
A web conference camera is installed in Jones 35 and connected to the instructor's computer. By using a web application like WebEx, instructors can connect to guest speakers or other students at remote locations. The Language Center also has a web conference camera available for check out.
