It has come to our attention that sometimes students in the virtual classroom Bongo meeting sessions cannot hear the audio when an instructor is sharing a video in the screen share feature. Examples of these videos being shared are YouTube videos, or possibly web sites with videos that deal with particular instruction from a course. Below is a picture of the box an instructor must check in order for the virtual students to hear the audio with the matching video, when screen sharing presentations.
By checking this box, the instructor has now shared the corresponding Audio with Video being played in the Screen Share feature.
Classrooms upgraded for simulcast delivery include a webcam, a second Epson projector, and a projection screen. The second projector and screen (located in the back of the room) can be used to view your virtual classroom students. Virtual classroom students will be able to view your webcam, anything you screen share and communicate with you through chat or audio.
Before Your Class Begins
Log on to the Teacher’s Workstation with your SSC Network Credentials
Turn on the Front Projector, and then the Rear Projector
A webcam has been installed to allow remote learners a view of the classroom. It is positioned so that it can capture not just the instructor, but also any information presented on the dry-erase board in the front of the classroom. The Webcam is on if the blue light is visible as in the photo above. If there are no lights visible on the camera, press the power button on the webcam remote as pictured below.
Using the Webcam Remote Control
The left/right arrows move the webcam left and right
The up/down arrows tilt the webcam
The zoom fast/slow buttons control the webcam zoom feature
The auto button can be used to automatically focus the webcam
If by chance the image displayed by the webcam is upside down, press the ‘REV’ button, this will right your image.
