Session Description

Pandemic needs for working and teaching in different settings has taught us important lessons on improving online connections. Collaboration and Classroom Technology Services at the University of Idaho was charged with coming up with alternative methods for meeting delivery and participation needs through hardware to improve perceived immediacy for all teams across OIT.

Though these technologies were initially tested in OIT, they are now being suggested for solutions on multiple campuses for various departments. This testing prompted changes in reducing classroom equipment to remove multiple options for achieving the same outcome, simplify the system, improve cluttered lectern space, and push innovation forward.

This session will share hardware ideas and our trial and error in testing in hopes to prompt a discussion about what hardware can bring to the video conferencing experience with manageable costs.
