Orchard Commons Innovative Spaces: Video Conferencing


Welcome to Orchard Commons, room 3074. This is a very innovative teaching room. It can be used as a simple classroom to show powerpoint slides, videos, that sort of thing that most teachers would use in their instruction. But this room also has another great feature which is “video conferencing.” As you can see, we have two main screens at the front of this room. which can be turned on here at the panel quite easily. These screens can be used as typical teaching screens for powerpoint slides or videos, or any other presentation. Pick one of the TVs upfront and send whichever source we’d like to it. So let’s take a look at some of the cameras. We have a presenter camera here Which, as we’ll see, shows the instructor. This is the camera view you would use if you were teaching a class. And you wanted to share it with some outside participants. We also have another camera view that would show the classroom. So this is a very innovative room both for standard teaching and also for new ways of teaching. This room is in Orchard Commons and is available to faculty, staff, and students across the University of British Columbia. Here in Vancouver. Which is in British Columbia. Which is in Canada. Which is somewhere in this world of ours. And we’re in a much bigger solar system that goes along with this planet, and beyond that there’s the Milky Way. Uhh beyond the Milky Way I’m not sure what you’d find… Possibly some sort of Gleep-Glop aliens maybe… having some sort of dance party in some sort of cantina? I would imagine. Possibly doing spice… illegally I would guess… but I don’t really know the international spice rules… So possibly they are legal in that country… …or planet.
