Video Teleconferencing

There are different options for Video Teleconferencing at USD depending on your location and the recipient on the other end of the call.

Option 1: The first is a software solution called Zoom that you download to your computer. The software is similar to using Skype but with more features. The receiving participant can download the software upon joining the call or can download the software prior.

Download the Basics of Using the Zoom Teleconferencing Software When Joining a Meeting guide.

1 to 1 meetings are free although you can see the limitations with the free version. If you have questions about using the software or would like to see about using our Pro account, contact

Option 2: You can also use USD supported software such as Adobe Connect or Blackboard Collaborate.

If you decide to go with one of the option above, it's important to make sure you have a webcam with sound or a webcam with a USB microphone. You will then select these to be your video/audio sources inside the software settings.

Option 3: From individual to groups up to 288, the University of San Diego offers 9 locations for IP-based video teleconferencing. There are 2 steps to have your video teleconference.
