Telecommunications Tools for Conferencing


Used when a group of people on campus are in a meeting room together wanting to make a call where everyone can participate in that call.

  • Before reserving a speaker phone, please reserve location of meeting or class. Speaker phones need an analog line to work. Most conference rooms and classrooms have analog lines. They do NOT work in offices unless an office has had a dedicated jack installed for speakerphone use.

Audio Conference Bridge:

Used when three or more people (or parties, if a speakerphone is being used) are wanting to all call into one phone call. All participants call one number and are all brought together by entering their assigned conference number.

  • A 48-hour notice is needed for scheduling the conference

Compressed Video Conference:

Used for two or three Bethel locations where Bethel video conferencing equipment can be set up.

  • A one-week notice is needed for a two-site video conference.
  • A two-week notice is needed fore more than three-site set up. A video bridge from an outside source will be needed which will be charged back to the requesting department's budget.

For information about teaching with video online please contact Teaching and Learning Technology for options.
