Take a look at our list of teaching locations that provide video conference and tele-teaching facilities. Allocate+ also allows you to see which rooms provide these facilities.
- In the "main" lecture theatre, on the Control Panel, touch "Call Audio/PC"
- Find the "remote" theatre in the directory tab (many theatres are under "Monash Lecture Theatres").
Touch the theatre to choose it, then press "Call" (you will hear long beep tones as the "main" theatre calls the "remote" theatre"). You can also dial the extension number directly using the "Keypad" tab.
- In the "remote" lecture theatre, a ring tone will sound. Have someone in the "remote" theatre touch "Answer" on the control panel (some theatres answer automatically)
- Ask a person in the "remote" lecture theatre to select "Room Settings" and select "Full Lighting" then press DONE. (Nothing more needs to be done in the "remote" theatre).
- In the "main" lecture theatre, touch "Call Audio/VC" (once or maybe twice) until you see the screen below.
- Touch the tab for the "main" lecture theatre
- Choose the lectern view that the "remote" theatre should see of you
- Now touch the tab for the "remote" lecture theatre. Choose "Preset 4" which will choose a full audience view of the "remote" theatre
- Touch "Send Content", select "Lectern PC" then choose "Stream"
- Touch "Advanced Controls" then under "Display layout" choose "Alternative" then touch DONE.
(This causes the "main" theatre's left projector display to also show the content rather than showing the "remote" audience [which could be a distraction for students in the "main" theatre]).
After the lecture is complete, choose "End" to end the videoconferencing sessions
The view students see
The view the presenter or lecturer sees
The lecturer sees the students in the "remote" lecture theatre on the rear screen of the lecture theatre and also on the left lectern screen. The presentation shows on the right lectern screen. The small screen in the middle of the lectern is the control panel
Remote Theatre (viewed from the back)
A "remote" lecture theatre from where students will also view the lecture. The students in a "remote" lecture theatre see the lecturer on the left display at the front of their theatre and see the presentation on the right display.
