Resources for Faculty & Staff

Trouble free, state-of-the-art video conferencing equipment is now available in DeKalb and at the NIU Outreach centers.

Video conferencing facilities contain all the best features of new smart classrooms, allowing you to see and hear your students in real time, work with documents, and connect your students to experts at remote sites.

If you are video conferencing with a full class, the Polycom rooms are your best bet. For small groups and one-on-one conferences, consider Adobe Connect or Wimba.

If some of your students are having trouble using Blackboard, recommend this online demo.
