Video conferencing

If you have requirements for video conferencing as part of teaching and learning please discuss your plans with the Digital Education Office first.

Which video conferencing solution is right for you?

The information below aims to help you work out the best solution for your needs. Typically, we recommend Microsoft Teams and Skype for Business for internal and for small to fairly large meetings. However, if you require additional functionality or have complex requirements, then tools such as Bluejeans and Zoom may be more suitable. 

If your particular video requirements do not seem to fit with the options below, or you are still unclear, then please contact the Unified Comms Team and we will be very happy to assist.
