For consultation about videoconferencing and scheduling please contact Ken Fager.

AD-HOC SESSIONS

Van Hise 286, 290, and 294 are equipped for Skype, Hangouts, Zoom, or Webex videoconferencing. The room features a movable pan-tilt-zoom high-definition camera and tabletop microphone/speaker system.

Because the videoconfernce hardware and software is already configured for the best possible experience, we ask that you 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 Hall rooms 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.
