When remotely presenting a lecture or class session live, it will be necessary to have the following:
- Internet connection
- Webcam (optional)
Setting Up Your Camera
Most telepresence solutions will allow you to broadcast video via a camera connected to your computer. For MacBooks and iMacs, these cameras are built-in to the computer. When using an application that has access to your camera, you may be prompted to provide consent for the application to use the camera. You can find some instructions on using the privacy controls for your camera in MacOS here.
Setting Up Your Microphone
Presenting a lecture, class session, office hours, or any other telepresence meeting will require a microphone. For MacBooks and iMacs, microphones are built-in to the computer. When an application requires access to your microphone, you may receive a prompt to provide consent for the application to use the microphone.
To verify which applications you've granted microphone access to:
- Launch System Preferences
- Select "Security & Privacy"
- Select the "Privacy" tab.
- Scroll to the "Microphone" setting
- Check the checkbox next to any applications that require use of your microphone
- Close System Preferences
