CarmenConnect: A Tool for Teaching

For faculty wanting to bring outside expert speakers into their class, there are many challenges.  Time, travel, and money can prohibit speakers from being able to even consider it.  That’s where technology can become a real asset.

CarmenConnect is a university-wide online tool that operates much like other webinar systems, allowing you to share live audio and video along with computer content for a media rich experience.  With these capabilities, it’s a perfect fit for bringing in external guest speakers, but it can be much more than that.  It can also be used to collaborate with others, offer virtual office hours, or even to teach to remote students.

Watch this video of one instructor’s experience using CarmenConnect to bring in a guest speaker from Slovenia.
