Zoom Teaching Studios provide faculty an on-campus classroom configured with advanced technologies to deliver course content to participants learning 100% online.
Why Zoom Teaching Studio?
If you are teaching a class session 100% online and prefer to teach in a classroom setting on-campus, you may want to consider using a Zoom Teaching Studio. Since you'll be teaching in a classroom, you'll have the benefit of campus WiFi, providing a stable internet connection. The camera is aligned so that you can view content and participants while still maintaining eye contact with the camera. Plus, you can automatically capture and share whiteboard content live with students.
What is included in the Zoom Teaching Studio?
The studio is equipped with the following equipment:
- Two (2) 55" displays with remote
View participants on one display and shared content or the classroom whiteboard on the other.
(Q9 Condenser Microphone)

- Mobile cart with iPad
After launching your Zoom meeting from your laptop, you can use the iPad to manage your meeting participants, share content, adjust the camera settings, and more.

Easily share whiteboard content live with participants.

How can I reserve a Zoom Teaching Studio?
All reservations are managed through Microsoft Bookings. Reserve a studio for 30, 60, or 90 minutes. We've added a 15-minute buffer to the beginning and the end of the reservation to allow for initial set-up and to properly disinfect the equipment as part of our COVID-19 shared responsibility.
Getting Started with Zoom Teaching Studio
- Schedule your Zoom meeting and invite the Zoom Teaching Studio room (location address listed above).
- Bring your laptop or mobile device to the Zoom Teaching Studio. You'll use your laptop to start, record, and end your Zoom meeting.
- Use the Remote control for the monitors to turn on the displays and adjust the audio. Do not change the inputs or any other settings on the displays.
- Do not join with computer audio or camera from your laptop. This will create audio feedback between your laptop and the built-in studio audio.
- Make the Zoom Teaching Studio room a co-host. This will allow the iPad controller to manage your meeting, including audio and camera once it's started from your laptop.
- Remember, If you plan to record, start the recording from your laptop (not the iPad controller).
- Do not move or adjust displays, microphone, or camera.
- To share the whiteboard using the Kaptivo camera, press the green button labeled "Share Content or Camera" on the iPad and select the Kaptivo Whiteboard Camera. The Kaptivo box mounted to the wall will light up blue when the camera is properly connected and sharing (see photo below). NOTE - if the Kaptivo camera appears to be stuck (not updating or changing the data shown) stop sharing in Zoom and then restart a new sharing session.
- Disinfect equipment used during your session including whiteboard eraser, markers, iPad controller, and remote (it is recommended to disinfect all equipment at the start at end of your session).
