How does Kaltura Live Room work?

For: Teachers and Staff

This webinar will cover general technical support with Kaltura Live Room and will answer questions such as: 

  • How does Kaltura live Room  work?
  • How do you manage expectations?
  • How do you make your session interactive?

Webinar Guidelines

To ensure a positive webinar experience for everyone, please pay attention to the following Guidelines: 

  • We will start at 13.00 or 20.00 sharp, no “Leids kwartiertje”. Coming in late means that you will miss out on the introduction and it will be harder to follow the story.
  • Please connect 5 minutes before the start time so that you can test your audio and webcam. Also check your browser: Kaltura Live Room works best in Edge, Chrome and Firefox. 
  • Check your background for privacy. Make sure there is nothing visible that you don’t want shown. 
  • Are there other people in your home? Inform them you are in a call and you don’t want to be disturbed. 
  • Remember that the webinar will focus on pedagogy to support teachers. Other questions not answered may be submitted to ISSC helpdesk for technical questions, or c4iremoteteaching@sea.leidenuniv.nl for pedagogy questions.

Do you have problems with audio or video?

  • Log out and log in again.
  • Consider using a different device (if you are on a phone, switch to a computer, or vise versa). 
  • Check your internet connection.
  • Check your browser. Kaltura Live Room works best in Edge, Chrome and Firefox.
  • Contact ISSC helpdesk if the problem persists.
