BYOD In-Class Teaching

Due to the phased modernisation of University learning spaces you may find yourself teaching in either a Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) learning space or a conventional learning space (non-BYOD). You will know what room you are scheduled in by reviewing your online timetable. 

In a BYOD learning space, staff will be required to bring their own, fully-charged, USW issued device into the learning space. To utilise the in-room camera and microphone through Panopto, users will need to interact with the Extron touch panel located on the lectern and the vSolution app found on your USW device.

Presenting in BYOD Learning Spaces

To present in a BYOD learning space you will need to project your own device screen onto the screen in the room. Mirror-casting, or screen-mirroring, is how you can duplicate or extend your own device screen to the screen in the classroom. Please watch the recordings below to familiarise yourself with how to mirror-cast your Windows or Mac device.

Recording Teaching in BYOD Learning Spaces

To utilise the in-room camera and microphone through Panopto, users will need to interact with the Extron touch panel located on the lectern and the vSolution app found on your USW device. Please watch the recordings below to familiarise yourself with how to record using vSolution on your Windows or Mac device. 

Important: You must use the vSolution app, not the Panopto app installed on your device. Only the vSolution app can connect Panopto to the in-room camera and microphone.
