Video Conferencing

Video Conferencing Best Practices

Virtual courses, meetings and webinars add a new dimension to the college experience and provide opportunities for both real time and time delayed collaboration between faculty, staff, and students. Teaching, learning, and working in an online environment can require additional (or different) preparation than being on-campus, and it is important to be mindful of adhering to campus standards of acceptable behaviors and actions in the new virtual environment just as if you were on campus. NECC strives to develop and implement inclusive and equitable policies and practices. With this in mind, we adhere to the assumption of goodwill as it pertains to our new virtual environment. We understand this is new to members of the college community and have provided some tips and guidelines below for your reference. Remember that existing NECC policies apply to the virtual meeting space.

In preparation for a video conference or meeting, keep these best practices in mind:
