Web Conferencing

What is web conferencing?

Web conferencing is a tool which allows librarians, students, and faculty to interact live via a web interface. It is built into AsULearn, ASU's course management software system. Some features include two-way audio, text messaging, video and a shared whiteboard.

Where does the session take place?

Facutly and students may log into the session individually from home or from the classroom.

Equipment Requirements?

A computer with an internet connection and speakers; microphone helpful, but not required.  If you do not have a microphone, you can use the text chat box to communicate.

RAP Session - Logging in:

  • Your librarian will send you a link to the RAP (web conferencing) session.

Instruction Session - Logging in:

  • Your librarian or faculty member will send instructions about accessing the library session.

Helpful Tips

  • There is a short download and Audio Setup Wizard to run in advance of using the software (the software will prompt you to run the Audio Setup Wizard).  Allow approximately 15 minutes for those steps.
  • Are you logging in from a work setting? There may be restrictions on your computer. Run the Setup Wizard well in advance of the session to determine if there are problems and discuss them with your local tech support staff.
  • If you have a question, email or phone the librarian conducting your session.
