You can have a videoconference in your office or home using desktop videoconferencing. Desktop videoconferencing gives you the ability to participate in videoconferences without having to go to a purpose-built room or purchase expensive equipment. Generally all that is required to attend a desktop videoconference is:

  • A reasonably up-to-date computer or mobile device
  • Webcam or camera function
  • Microphone
  • Speaker
  • A broadband internet connection

Zoom is the free Otago-supported desktop videoconferencing option for staff and students. See the Zoom Support blog for more information about this service:
