Web Conferencing

The web conferencing system allows instructors and students to participate in real-time, recorded, and "on-demand" events. In a typical class that utilizes web conferencing, the instructor may conduct periodic sessions to deliver lectures, review homework, or answer questions. Students can access the link to this virtual meeting room within their learning management system. WebCampus is currently utilizing Blackboard Collaborate to run these real-time events.  

You can browse our RUNNING WEB CONFERENCES GUIDE that was created for both new users with limited web conferencing experience as well as seasoned veterans who just need an update on the latest features:

Recordings available, anytime Most web conferencing events are recorded so that students can play them back as many times as needed. Instructors may also create pre-recorded or "on-demand" events that cover a specific topic or assignment. Links to these on-demand events are available in the online course.

A Value-Added Service Students can use the web conferencing system to conduct web conferences with their classmates in preparation for projects. This gives students the opportunity to practice their virtual teaming skills. Students who wish to make use of this service should contact their professor.

Rewards of Participation Instructors have cited cases where students, through their active participation in web conferences, were able to demonstrate a much better understanding of class concepts then they would have otherwise. Many students have also developed new skills for managing virtual projects and virtual teams – a skill that is becoming increasingly important for global and multinational companies.

Web conferencing events have been integrated into most WebCampus programs, though the number of web conferences conducted in each class varies. To find out the level of web conferencing activity that takes place in the classes you are interested in, consult the course syllabus files or contact the instructor who will conduct the course.

I enrolled in Systems 625 through WebCampus this semester. This was my first online class in graduate school and I didn’t know what to expect. I was pleasantly surprised. The professor was very involved and there was excellent interaction between students, even though none of us ever physically met. I was able to work on my own schedule— at work or during the weekend."
