Videoconferencing

OSU instructors have access to the YouSeeU Videoconferencing platform thanks to its integration with the Brightspace LMS used on campus. This does not require any external accounts, logins, websites, or other software and is available to all faculty and students with no additional fees. Realtime videoconferencing can be used for any instructional environment whether traditional, hybrid, or fully online and is a good option for communicating with students and collaborating on projects when time and space do not allow for in-person meetings.
