Online Rooms Essentials

April 14, 2020 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Online rooms is a “web-conferencing” application that is accessible within each Brightspace course site. This tool allows you to schedule and host synchronous sessions with your students in the learning environment. Some examples of ways to use this tool include hosting online office hours, review sessions prior to an exam, guest speaker presentations or allow your students to make presentations. Synchronous sessions can be recorded for review, or you can use the room on your own to record lectures. This session will demonstrate the features of the room and share best practices for using these features.

The session will run for about an hour – with time for Q/A afterwards.

Specific topics include:

  • Scheduling a meeting
  • Uploading a presentation and using the whiteboard
  • Sharing your screen or other applications
  • Interacting with participants using chat, direct message, polling, and other tools
  • Using Breakout rooms
  • Recording a lecture and linking it in the course site.

NOTE:  We prefer you register for the session so we know how many people are attending; however, you can automatically join the session by clicking the link below.  The session is scheduled to start at 2pm; however the room will open 15 minutes before the start time.
