Videoconference: Tips For Students Taking Videoconference Classes
A few tips to help make the most out of videoconference classes
Microphones: The Videoconference system is fully interactive. The microphones are always on. Other sites can hear comments (even whispering). Don’t say anything you wouldn’t want everyone to hear. When asking a question, get the instructor’s attention by saying “Question from Vancouver” to let them know you have a question and what site the question is from. When speaking, normal conversational voice levels are sufficient. PLEASE do not tap on the microphones or place books/paper on the microphones. This causes audio disturbances.
Watching recordings of classes: Videoconference classes are now captured via the Panopto lecture capture system and made available to you over the Internet. Links to class recordings are available from your class page in Blackboard.
Contact your instructor for further directions.
Homework: Most homework assignments will be submitted through your courses Blackboard site. However if you do need to turn in homework to your operator, it must have Your Name, Course Name and Course Number, and your Instructor's Name. We recommend you keep an extra copy of your submitted material. Homework must be turned in when the professor requests. If it is handed in late, it will be marked with the date/time the operator received it. Please come to VECS 110 before or after class to pick up and/or drop off homework.
Handouts: Handouts will be distributed when the instructor calls for them. If you miss a class or need another copy, please contact your Operator VECS 110 or call 546-9033.
