Videoconference Rooms

Learning Support Services supports four videoconference rooms designed for collaboration. All rooms are equipped with a camera, microphone, and computer with all the software necessary to share your lecture and presentation with all participants. 

Ad-Hoc Sessions

Van Hise 286 is the premiere room for Skype, Hangouts, or Zoom videoconferencing. The room features a movable pan-tilt-zoom high-definition camera and tabletop microphone/speaker system. 

Van Hise 290 and 294 are also Skype, Hangouts, and Zoom videoconference capable. A fixed-focus camera provides a wide-angle view that covers the majority of the room. 

Because the videoconfernce hardware and software is already configured for the best possible experience, you will have to use the computer in the room. 

Semester Long Videoconference Courses

UW-Madison collaborates with other universities to provide videoconference courses through the Big Ten Academic Alliance

Van Hise 254, 290, and 294 use dedicated advanced videoconference hardware to share high-definition audio and video between peer institutions. Coordination for semester-long videoconference courses requires consultation, technology vetting, and instructor training prior to the start of the semester.
