Tools for managing multimedia meetings remotely.
The University provides its members with tools for scheduling and delivering online meetings with different features according to the product and context of use: sharing of audio and video, documents, virtual whiteboards, applications and user desktops.
The virtual meetings can be of the one-to-many type ("webinar", in which one person talks and the others assist by listening, with the opportunity to ask questions to the presenter in chat or asking individually the word to intervene in voice) or as a peer-to-peer meeting (groups of few people guarantee a better quality and order in the logistic management of the meeting, as well as a more effective understanding of the audio contributions).
Depending on the specific needs of the meeting, it is possible to choose the most suitable software among those proposed. In particular, the University offers Zoom and Google Meet.
Zoom is the cloud video conferencing service chosen and adopted by the University to manage video lessons, webinars and virtual meetings with special audio-video quality needs and tools for managing the virtual room and participants.
Google Meet is Google’s video conferencing application especially useful for video calls with a small number of self-managed participants and can benefit from the integration with the apps available on the Gsuite Unitrento (e.g. Gmail, Gdrive, Calendar).
