Video & Web Conferencing


Faculty, Staff, and Students


Conferencing tools help bring people together to communicate and/or work together from remote places.  These tools make it possible to host online meetings, webinars, classes, training, and demonstrations without traveling.  At Spelman, you will find users using these tools to work with others on grant proposals, co-­teach classes with colleagues, or to bring guest speakers to their classes.  Spelman College offers several conferencing options with a wide range of features. A room-­based conference is referred to as a video conference. A browser-­based conference is referred to as a web conference.
