Getting Started with Webmeetings


Many distance courses similarly conduct live meetings to classroom sessions. Instructors can schedule sessions for each class, or have a virtual room that's always available for student collaboration. 

For more information about how your instructor plans to conduct the class, check out their Blackboard course site or reach out to them directly.


Zoom is another video conferencing software officially supported across the UA System. While primarily a peer-to-peer communication tool, its utility as a course meeting tool cannot be overstated. Instructors, check out CELT's information on Zoom, detailed by the Instructional Designers. 


Some instructors prefer alternative software for hosting their courses. Some of these options include Google Meet and Adobe Connect.
