There are four Web conferencing Platforms at Seneca and we have resources to help you teach with all of them: Teaching with BigBlueButton, Teaching with Microsoft Teams, Teaching with Webex, and Teaching with Zoom. We also have information and resources to help you choose which platform will work best for you in any teaching situation.

We created a Wakelet space for the resources we mentioned at New Faculty Orientation, plus additional ones that might be helpful: https://wakelet.com/@Seneca_NFO.The handouts and presentations from some of the sessions are also available in this Wakelet space. We’ll add more as they become available to us.
