The mLab can be a great venue for videoconferening. You can and use our computers, camera, mics, and speakers to connect with people at a remote site in real time. Assistance is also available to help you connect using your own computer.
In the lab we have several different solutions, appropriate for different needs, including:
- Skype is great for connecting to a single remote site. Skype can keep a text chat on the screen along with the video and audio. Skype is a good platform formeetings and interviews where a group at Reed needs to interact with a distant person or group, and all or almost all of the communication is by voice. Skype is free.
- GoToMeeting has many features including voice and video support, screen sharing, and text chat. Contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org for login information.
