While most classrooms are “Hybrid” classrooms, outfitted with the Logitech camera and mic (“pringle can”), some classrooms are equipped with Polycom (VTT) equipment, and a few Zoom Rooms are equipped with high end Zoom video and microphone equipment (a fully integrated Zoom room). It will be important for you to be aware of what equipment is in the rooms in which you are teaching. Use this classroom list to find out what equipment your room has in it. You can find out what classrooms you are teaching in by logging into eLion and selecting your Class Roster.
