Microphones for Zoom and hybrid rooms

The microphones listed on this page have been tested by the IT department and are intended as a complement to the teacher whose needs have not been met by the pre-installed technical equipment in Zoom and hybrid halls. As a teacher, you have to order the microphone you are interested in yourself, this page is only intended as helpful recommendations.

Tested and recommended microphones

The microphones in the classrooms are built into the document camera, which means that they work best when you are close to the camera. If you as a teacher feel the need for a more mobile microphone, you need to buy the microphone yourself, so to facilitate that process, we at IT have tested a number of microphones and found the ones we recommend for you as a teacher. You do not need to think about drivers.

If you are not sure what type of USB port you have, read more on the Connect with USB in Zoom and hybrid rooms  page.

If you have the wrong type of USB port in your laptop or do not have enough ports, read more on the page about USB accessories for Zoom and hybrid rooms  for help.

Note: In the lecture halls, we at IT recommend that you use the microphones that come with the hall, as the sound of the microphones also goes out to the hearing loop in the hall. If there are no students in the room, however, it is not as important which microphone you use.
