Online meetings: Adobe Connect, Vidyo, Skype

All UiB employees can use the web conferencing platform Adobe Connect for free on their own computer. It is available through uninett e-campus. Here you find more information and instructions.

All UiB employees can use Vidyo either on their own PC/Mac/Linux or through the UiB Video conference facilites.

You can also use Skype to arrange online meetings.

Skype for business is also possible.


Video conference

GFI has own video conference facilities. Contact Idar Hessevik if you plan to use them. GFI employees do also have access to the UiB video conference facilities.

You can use Vidyo from the GFI video conference room.


Telephone conference

IT Department of UiB recommends using the service at uninett.no to arrange your telephone conference. Read here how. You provide the participants with a conference phone number to call and a PIN, and the participants pay for their individual calls to the Norwegian conference number.

Another option is using external telecon providers as for example Uberconference or PowWowNow. This service offers several national dial-in numbers for different countries. International participants can use their national dial-in to join the conference, and do thus not have to pay an international call to Norway.
