IS&T is excited to share details about our HyFlex classrooms on campus as well as resources to maximize your experience teaching this fall. The following are the three types of HyFlex classrooms available to you on campus:
Prime – Include a Zoom Panel for direct connection to a Zoom meeting. The microphones are mounted on the ceiling and will capture sound from anywhere in the room. The classroom cameras are either mounted on the ceiling or the back wall and give a clear view of the whiteboard and the instructor’s lectern.
- Important note – Please keep in mind if you are in a Prime classroom and teaching from the podium computer, you will manage your Zoom meeting on the Zoom Panel. The Panel cannot create and manage breakout rooms. If you want to use Zoom’s breakout room feature you will have to use your personal computer.

Flexcam – In these classrooms, Zoom uses the Desktop Computer to start the meeting. The Flexcam is a high-quality webcam with an integrated microphone mounted on a free-standing portable suspension bracket with a 15’ cable. The camera view can include the whiteboard or the instructor’s lectern.
Connect – Former Panopto Lecture Capture rooms can now join Zoom meetings using the Desktop Computer. The wall-mounted camera becomes the primary video source and uses the room control panel to adjust the camera shot. The microphone is mounted on the instructor’s station or table.
