This post continues our 20 Day Challenge to understand the technical aspects of videoconferencing, particularly the section on dialing.
Being organized and having quick access to critical information is essential to successful connections for teachers and students. Some of the following information can be easier to understand if you take a picture of it.
- IP Address of video unit
- Tech Contact Info
- of your network
- of your vendor
- of your regional support agency
- of the place that you are trying to connect with
On Fridays, print a schedule of video conferences for that coming week with how they are connected and contact information.
- Quick Setup Sheet for Video Conference Unit
- A picture of how everything is connected
- A note that explains to to get the tv to the correct channel or the projector on the correct input.
- Remotes–>video conference unit, television, projector, etc.
- Where to get extra batteries for the remote
- Remote Control Quick Reference Guide
What do you keep near your video conferencing unit? Where do you keep your remotes?
