Videoconferencing

The videoconferencing service allows teaching activities and administrative meetings to occur between participants who are physically in separate locations, such as across campus or between institutions.

Videoconferencing can help to save time and money, by reducing the effort and costs associated with travel between campuses.

You'll find videoconferencing facilities in certain meeting rooms and lecture theatres at each campus.

  • Video teaching. Video teaching conferences can be scheduled by contacting Help@Deakin using the details on the right.
  • Videoconferencing point to point. This type of conferencing allows adhoc video conferences to be established between two locations. One participant location dials the other location directly.
  • Videoconferencing software. Deakin uses the Lync application for videoconferencing. It can be used by individuals on personal computers and telephones, and groups in more formal settings. Get help installing and using Lync.
  • Virtual meeting points. Virtual meeting points (VMPs) will be used to schedule both planned and adhoc meetings. Staff can use VMPs to connect to a multi-party videoconference. People using Deakin videoconference units/telephones and people offsite can join a virtual meeting. Get more information on using virtual meeting points.
