Cisco Spark is a collaborative messaging tool that allows users to communicate on a one to one basis or in groups. Spark brings your teams together and makes it easy to keep people and work connected. Securely send messages, share files, and meet face-to-face with anyone, anywhere, anytime.
Cisco Spark will be used in the place of Skype and Spark's associated hardware will be used to upgrade the video conference rooms. For more information please visit the Spark I.T. page or contact the Help Desk.
The video conferencing facilities allows faculty, staff and students to visually communicate from multiple campuses to conduct meetings, interviews and classes between campuses. Using dedicated cameras, microphones and displays at each location, participants are able to interact with others at distant sites as easily as with those in the same room.
To reserve the video conference rooms, please email Cathy Tessier at firstname.lastname@example.org. Scheduling of rooms is dependent upon availability.
Classroom Technology & Media Services can provide an orientation for faculty and staff who are interested in using the video conferencing rooms for distance learning or meetings. Please make your request as far in advance as possible to ensure scheduling and allow enough time for a training overview. To arrange an orientation or for technical assistance with making a video connection, please submit the online Equipment Request Form.
If a conference room is required, please schedule the desired meeting space through your Outlook calendar. For more information on scheduling conference rooms, please visit the How to Schedule Conference Rooms in Outlook web page.
