Partial online teaching

Partial online teaching

On this page, you will find help with teaching where there are both students in an AAU classroom (learning room/seminar room) and students participating online. This may be the new situation due to fewer students allowed to participate physically in the premises because of Covid-19.

Below you can see the technical options that IT Services (ITS) suggests. In relation to pedagogy and didactics, CDUL provides assistance. ITS and CDUL offer mini-courses in the use of technical equipment, pedagogy, and didactics.

Please note that institutions must purchase Polycom Studio themselves. (link gerne direkte ned i accordion, hvor vejledning til indkøb er)

If you have any questions or suggestions for improvement, you are always welcome to contact ITS Support.

    Polycom studio with MS Teams and AAU Zoom

    DSUR has decided that the institutions independently have to purchase equipment for partial online teaching, as a result of Covid-19. ITS suggests purchasing Polycom Studio. ITS supports this with assistance, guidance, and introduction.

    NOTE users with a computer that only has USB-C and no USB port must buy an adapter. These are typically users with Macbook Pro and newer Surface computers. See the instruction below:

    If your PC only has a USB-C port, you must obtain a USB adapter:


    It can be ordered from the ITS purchasing department.

    Questions concerning which rooms that are equipped with Polycom Studio or where to borrow a Polycom Studio should be directed to the institute. ITS is not aware of the individual institution's agreements.
