Scopia Desktop can be used for web conferences where the audio and video equipment (cameras, microphones, and speakers) is attached to a desktop or laptop. Scopia users can connect to other Scopia users and/or other conferencing systems. At UWF, Scopia is used for both instruction and meetings.

Scheduling a Scopia Session

UWF has several Scopia Desktop virtual meeting rooms of different “seating capacities” including one 20-seat virtual room and several 10- and 5-seat virtual rooms. Scopia Desktop virtual meeting rooms can be scheduled in the same manner as physical conference rooms through UWF Google Calendar. Use “video conf” as a search term when searching for Scopia meeting rooms in the calendar. The number next to the video conference room name is the Meeting ID you will use to connect to your session.
