Instructors at UConn can set up web/video conferencing and lecture capture/streaming.

Academic IT (AIT) provides technical solutions for both synchronous and asynchronous content delivery. They focus on assisting faculty to effectively integrate these technologies into their courses or seminars.


Video conferencing facilities are located at the Storrs campus as well as the regional campuses. The video conferencing systems allow UConn to connect one or more sites regionally, nationally, and internationally for scheduled classes, administrative meetings and other conferences.

All instructors interested in offering an AIT course should contact AIT two semesters in advance.

Room Descriptions

In addition to allowing connections between the equipped rooms, AIT can facilitate participation from a computer equipped with a microphone and camera using Cisco WebEx.

UConn also supports Microsoft Teams and Blackboard Collaborate, which are two other web conferencing options which can be used independently from the video conference equipped rooms. 

Asynchronous, One-way Streaming, and Recording

UConn uses Kaltura for lecture capture and streaming/recording. You can schedule a recording or stream from any of our Video Conference enabled rooms.  In addition to the room based Kaltura systems, we also support Kaltura Capture, which is an application you can install on your computer to record your screen, webcam, and voice. CETL Educational Technologies can provide Kaltura Capture support.
