Videoconferencing at Deakin University

People videoconferencingVideoconferencing is a service available at Deakin which uses special audio visual equipment that enables people separated by distance to participate in lectures and meetings whilst having a sense that they are 'all in the room together'.

Some of the scenarios in which videoconferencing might be used include;

  • Having a lecture delivered at Melbourne Campus at Burwood and having the sound and video transmitted to Warrnambool Campus so that Warrnambool students can participate in the lecture also.
  • Collaborating with a research team in another state, and sharing visual statistical information with the team
  • Having an administrative meeting between participants at all four campuses, and including a participant who wishes to join via phone only
  • Delivering a Powerpoint presentation at Geelong Campus at Waurn Ponds and having it seen and heard at Melbourne Campus at Burwood
  • Interviewing a candidate who is physically located overseas

Deakin University has a number of high quality videoconferencing facilities, which are available for booking by university staff and students for teaching, learning, research and administrative purposes. These facilities are also made available on a limited commercial basis for events such as conferences which are held at Deakin.
