Technical guides for remote and hybrid activities

These guides will help you as a teacher to prepare the technical equipment used in remote and hybrid activities, for example how to achieve good quality on audio and visual content and how to use the commonly used equipment.

All advice applies to both remote and hybrid activities

Student quote

"The most crucial thing is sufficient technical competence on the part of the teacher. At the lowest level, they should know how to set up screen sharing and a microphone so that the lecture can be followed without disturbing elements for those who are not present."

Like the pedagogical advice, the technical advice for remote activities also applies to hybrid situations. The conditions of the lecture halls or classrooms are added to the hybrid situation.

Check the technical conditions of the room

Before you do hybrid teaching, you need to find out which rooms can be used for hybrid activities, and what technical equipment is included in these.

Note: The conditions of the rooms varies between different campuses.

Share digital tablet and document camera in Zoom

If you need to share the content displayed on a digital tablet or under a document camera, this can be done in Zoom. You might want to show already produced teaching material or share content that is written or drawn in real time. You can write or draw on a tablet or on a plain paper under the document camera.
