Video Conferences

Video conferencing allows live, two-way interactive audio and video. Bradley is using this technology to collaborate on semester-long coursework, host guest lecturers, and conduct large group discussions at multiple sites around the country and world.

Our main video conferencing facility is located in CGCC 124.  This state-of-the-art facility seats 32 participants in the round.  You can do a point-to-point (1 remote site) or a multipoint videoconference (up to 3 remote sites).  This facility allows for desktop/laptop display and transmission, VHS and DVD playback and record, and audio conferencing.
 
We are capable of taking video conference technology into a typical classroom using a portable video conferencing setup.

Skype has become the most commonly used tool for conducting video conferences on campus.  It is easily accessible and freely available at www.skype.com. It is easy to use and works on many devices.  The free version allows for one-to-one video conferences and even allows desktop sharing so that you can deliver a presentation or show a webpage.  There is also a paid version of Skype that allows for more people to join the conference.  Skype generally delivers audio and video well, however, it is subject to slow-downs when there is heavy network traffic.

To conduct or participate in a video conference, you will need the software to run it, a computer or capable mobile device, a web cam or built-in camera, microphone, and speakers or headset.

WebEx is also used on campus for many video conferencing events.
