Video meetings

It's possible to schedule video meetings with participants attenting LiU, and outside LiU. It's possible to connect via link or calling in with a phone (using a meeting ID). Both the meeting link and meeting ID is created by the organiser and shows up in the meeting invitation.

Sharing screen in group room

You can use Zoom to share your screen on a larger screen mounted on the wall in the group rooms in Studenthuset at Campus Valla . Follow the instructions on the screen for detailed information on how to connect.

An HDMI cord is also available as an alternative for screen sharing.

The wireless sharing will initially be tested in group rooms in Studenthuset at Campus Valla, but are planned for more group rooms on our campuses.
