video conferenceVideoconferencing

The mLab can be a great venue for videoconferening. You can and use our computers, camera, mics, and speakers to connect with people at a remote site in real time. We can also help you connect using your own computer.

In the lab we have several different solutions, appropriate for different needs, including:

  • Skype is great for connecting to a single remote site. Skype can keep a text chat on the screen along with the video and audio.  Skype is a good platform formeetings and interviews where a group at Reed needs to interact with a distant person or group, and all or almost all of the communication is by voice. Skype is free. 
  • GoToMeeting has many features including voice and video support, screen sharing, and text chat. Contact us at mlab@reed.edu for login information.
