Telecovid_reduitEN

 

From the ETSAB IT Service we want to help teachers with a small information guide that we find useful for carrying out the teaching activity. For this, we have compiled a set of applications, gadgets and services that may be of your interest.

 

Software

UPC software distribution agreements

The UPC has different software distribution agreements aimed at all teaching staff and also all its students, with current enrollment.

The UPC also has agreements with different developers for the purchase of licenses at special prices.

Classroom Resources

The school classrooms are equipped with audiovisual systems through which you can project audio and video. Specifically, you have a PC connected to a projector, a speaker system and the possibility of connecting your laptop or other devices to project images or sound.

 

Video recording

The Oriol Bohigas Library Factoria - ETSAB offers you advice on the creation of multimedia material, such as video recording and editing (with power point files, microvideos), material scanning (slides) or image retouching. You can also receive training in basic video editing tools, in small groups, for students and teaching staff.

Access to: Recording service.

 

Mobile device projection 

You also have the possibility of projecting your mobile device screen, so that you can see the content of the screen projected in the classrooms.

You can take surveys during a class with online programs, without having to install any type of software. For example:
