As you prepare for your videoconference, here are some questions and best practices things to take into consideration…

• Where on campus will you be located?
• Will there be two-way audio and video interaction between all sites?
• Do you want a recording of the videoconference
• How many participants/presenters will be at the campus location?
• How many remote sites are connecting?

• Which sites have computer presentations?
• Can we schedule a test with the external sites?
• Where do you want your presentation laptop located?
• Do the external sites want to see the presenters or the audience?
• What does your remote participant want to see while they are speaking?
• Is there a time difference?
• Reminder – Wired networks are more stable than wireless networks
• Be sure to collect a list of phone numbers and contact information for all presenters and support staff.
• Consider loading all materials onto one laptop
• Consider condensing all presentations into one master slide deck
• Audience participation can be captured by:

1. Have the person answering or a moderator repeat questions on their mic.
2. Provide audience note cards for questions to be submitted to a moderator, who then relays the questions.
3. Place 1 or 2 mics on floor stands in the audience for those with questions to approach, or have someone bring (“running”) the mic to the participant
