Mount Holyoke College's video conferencing facility (Library 418) is a service that supports the college's curriculum by connecting, via IP only, with other institutions, speakers, and other persons or groups related to the college and its community.
Scheduling priority will be given to those events that most directly support the mission and curriculum of the college. The facility will be made available to the faculty, administrative and departmental offices and to student groups for co-curricular events.
Staff support for video conferencing is available from Research and Instructional Support (RIS) and/or Media Services. We offer orientation and recommendations of video conferencing tools for first time users, and set-up assistance at the beginning of a video conference session. Conferencing equipment is designed for faculty and staff to be self-sufficient users once they are familiar with its use. We do not typically offer a staff person to remain in the room during an entire video conference call or class session, but emergency support is available should any mid-session support issues arrise.
Reservations for the facility may be made by calling Media Resources at x3163. At least 7 days notice is required and a test call is recommended as early as possible. The service is available on a first-come-first-served basis.
Any fees accrued outside of standard connection charges for curriculum related and co-curricular events will be charged back to the department or organization. Fees may include remote site rental or service charges, and technician fees.
