Thomas Jefferson University


The Academic Commons can enhance the learning experience of remote students with videoteleconferencing, streaming, and virtual classrooms.

For fully interactive and "real time" connection with distant students, we provide videoteleconferencing over the Internet (VTC/IP) service. In addition to sharing a presentation among the sites, this service allows for two-way, fully interactive audio and video communication between the sites. It's perfect for classes where students need to be able to view materials, communicate questions and comments, and make presentations to their peers.

Mobile videoconferencing units can be used to bring guest speakers into your classroom or to connect you to one or more other sites.Trained media support staff coordinate the arrangements with the remote site so you can focus on teaching.

Scott Room 200A

The Academic Commons has a 20-seat classroom equipped for videoconferencing that can be reserved by faculty and staff. Please contact Video Production after scheduling the classroom, so they can activate the system and make sure everyone in the room can be seen and heard.
