I teach in a UB classroom. Do I need a webcam?

Most UB classrooms now feature built-in Panopto technology for recording and livestreaming, accessible from the teaching station. You can also host virtual guests using Zoom or Webex in most classrooms.

Check the UB Space Request System to see whether your room includes the technology needed for recording, livestreaming and conferencing.
