Installing the video kit for hybrid teaching

This video shows how to install and configure the video kit (or "koffertje") for use in your digital teaching environment. It demonstrates how to set it up in your classroom and in Kaltura Live Room, Microsoft Teams, and Zoom (you don't need a video kit for Mediasite). Point the webcam towards the teacher for the best sound quality (at a maximum distance of 3 meters).

The video is interactive, which means that some items are clickable (such as choosing the language of the video) and you have to make choices during the playback of the video to find the appropriate content. Subtitles are provided in both Dutch and English.

If you want to know what’s available at your faculty or if you have any other questions, please contact your video coordinator.
