Other support offered for remote teaching

Record your lecture in one of our Learning Spaces

The COE IT team provides remote support for faculty interested in using the Learning and Collaboration Spaces for recording their lectures. The College of Engineering supports a number of rooms for local and remote teaching and collaboration. Most rooms are equipped with computers, whiteboards, conferencing equipment, document cameras and wireless video. Currently, these rooms can be scheduled for recording lectures during the remainder of the Spring 2020 semester in both Omaha and Lincoln (subject to change). 

Before reserving a room, please review the following information: 

1) All support for recording your lecture will be remote with no technical support onsite, the IT team will be available to assist faculty by logging into Zoom or you can reach them by phone. 

2) The instructor camera will be set to a medium shot of the desk. The floors in these classrooms are marked with camera limits, so instructors know if they’ve stepped out of frame.

3) The COE IT team will be able to remotely start and stop the room systems – make the connection to Zoom and enter meeting ID.

4)  Faculty must schedule their Zoom meetings and provide the Zoom meeting ID to the IT team. 

5) We encourage faculty to reserve the rooms at least 24 hours in advance.
