#34 - Run a small group or 1-to-1 video conference

  1. Recreating the dynamics of an in-class session.

  2. Assure that online meetings are reliable and good enough quality.

  3. Record a meeting if necessary.
Solution overview

Use this approach for a more intimate and discursive approach. Microsoft Teams is a good, simple solution. You can choose from media, including audio, video and text. You can share a computer screen to do a presentation or a demo. Alternatively, if you need to guarantee higher quality and reliability, request the Starleaf videoconferencing system from AV Services (installed in some special videoconference rooms at Warwick). Students can also set-up and run these events themselves. Microsoft Teams collaboration gives them a simple self-service system for starting a videoconference at any time. You can record meetings using the Teams system.

Process
  1. Decide which system you should use:
    1. Teams is simple, and students can run their own meetings - follow the link in the tools section below.
    2. If using Teams, you can start an ad hoc meeting in chat, or schedule a meeting in the calendar. If you schedule a meeting, and specify a team channel for it to take place in, all members of that channel will receive an invitation. This syncs with Outlook calendars.
    3. Starleaf for a more supported, higher quality system - contact AV Services.
