Zoom and hybrid rooms at KTH Södertälje
Lecture halls and classrooms at KTH Södertälje have both been adapted for Zoom and hybrid teaching in the same way, with a microphone and speakers, as well as a document camera. Here you will find both information about the technical equipment and a list of adapted rooms.
A number of lecture halls and classrooms at KTH Södertälje have been prepared to be able to easily conduct video meetings with Zoom, for example for both distance and hybrid teaching.
Both the lecture halls and the classrooms have a microphone and speakers available in the room, as well as a document camera installed. The document camera facilitates the opportunity for you as a teacher to convey what you write on paper to everyone in the room and in Zoom. You show this camera instead of the camera that shows you, it is not possible to have both running at the same time on the same login in the meeting.
Adapted equipment in the rooms
When using the document camera, you place the paper you are writing on directly under the camera will focus automatically.
The document camera is called "UVC-Camera" in Zoom and you will find it in the list among your other cameras. You can find your connected cameras either under the Zoom settings (support.zoom.us) or by clicking the arrow pointing upwards next to the camera button when you start the Zoom meeting.
Microphone and speakers (Jabra puck)
All rooms have a portable microphone and speakers in the same unit, a so-called Jabra puck. Place it on an open surface so that the sound can both be spread and captured easily.
The Jabrapuck is avaliable in Zoom and you will find them in the list among your other microphones and speakers. You can either find your connected microphones under the Zoom settings (support.zoom.us) or by clicking the arrow pointing upwards next to the camera button when you start the Zoom meeting.
