During the 2020-2021 academic year, dozens of classrooms were installed with cameras that communicate with the classroom’s installed computer and easily allow instructors to live stream or interact with remote students.

To live stream or web-conference from a room with a camera, instructors should take the following steps:

  • A UCLA Login ID. To access the Internet from a classroom, you will need to authenticate using your UCLA ID.
  • Zoom Account. The Zoom software is installed on all classroom computers, but instructors will need to use their own accounts to either start or join meetings. If recording, “Record to the Cloud” must be selected.
  • Wireless Microphone. The classroom’s PA system is connected to the classroom computer and can provide a direct audio signal for the meeting.
  • Camera Remote Control. The camera has a remote control that controls the camera movement and can store up to two presets.

Please note: Due to the high demand for microphones this Fall Quarter (2021), wireless lapel microphones will not be available for checkout for the majority of classrooms. A microphone will be delivered to the classroom each day for classrooms with live-stream and web-conference capability.

See more detailed instructions on how to use the Zoom application in the classroom.
