Zoom gives everyone a front row seat: Integrating on-campus and remote delivery

Presentation Type

Spotlight on Practice


Room 1




A lot has changed in 2020, and Information Technology Services (ITS) have had to adapt quickly to continue the support of the University’s teaching mission. With the fast track implementation of Zoom and expansion of online teaching, more emphasis has been put on the “remote audience”.

This led to the development of our Remote Teaching Studio and new spaces that allow delivery to on-campus and remote students at the same time. These spaces put the online student first, by improving interactions and visibility of students and teacher, and providing tools for better collaboration and improved live demonstrations.

This spotlight session will be delivered from a brand-new space which enables integration of on-campus and remote delivery. The session will cover the usage of Zoom in this room type with a live demonstration. We will also discuss room design and teaching space innovation in the future - very much with a simple, less is more approach.

We have learnt “the old way isn’t necessarily the best way”.
