Video Conferencing Services
Pacific University provides two online video conferencing technologies that anyone in the Pacific Community can adopt for their teaching. These include:
- Adobe Connect
- Google Hangouts
- Video (Camera): In order to share a video of yourself your computer needs to be equipped with a functioning video camera. Basic cameras that come built-in with most of the laptops should be quite sufficient. If you are using a desktop computer without a webcam there is a number of affordable portable webcams available on the market, like Logitech HD Webcam C310.
- Audio (Speakers/Microhone): Just as for video, the build-in notebook or computer speakers are sufficient enough. We also recommend using a USB microphone headset, like Logitech USB Mic as it would contribute to sound and voice quality as well as keep the external sounds in the room out.
For more information about these services, please click on the links above. The Center can also provide guidance on how to best integrate these tools into your teaching. Please contact Al Weiss (email@example.com, 352-1417) if you would like to speak about any of these services.
