Now UB instructors can invite virtual guests to engage with in-person classes via Webex or Zoom in most UB classrooms. Or, use the included Panopto software to record and livestream lectures from the teaching station. Here’s how to find the right room for your needs.

The majority of UB classrooms received technology upgrades for Fall 2020, adding recording, livestreaming and video conferencing technology to the suite of standard UB classroom technology

You can review technology options in UB classrooms, and reserve a room that suits your needs, using the UB Space Request System.

If this is your first time using the UB Space Request System, you can find helpful guides to booking a room in UBbox.

Finding the right classroom

To see technology options in a specific room, visit the UB Space Request System and check under the Features section for that classroom.

When in doubt, look for the good, better and best labels in the Notes section for your classroom:

  • Good classrooms all have a computer equipped with software for recording, livestreaming and conferencing. All you need to do is bring a webcam and plug it in.
  • Better classrooms add built-in cameras and microphones, so you don’t need to bring anything—just start recording, livestreaming or conferencing with a few taps.
  • Best classrooms have all the features and capabilities of a “Better” room, plus the ability to schedule your classroom recordings in advance.
