Using your linkblue credentials, Zoom web conferencing allows for real-time interaction in “rooms” of up to 300 people, which presents an ideal way to replace synchronous, in-person conversations with synchronous, remote conversations.

Microsoft Teams allows synchronous and asynchronous chat, audio, video, and document sharing among groups for classes, tutoring, office hours, projects, and more, all integrated with other Microsoft products within the University of Kentucky services.
Respondus & Remote Proctoring
Respondus Lockdown Browser and Monitor are automated proctoring services that allow faculty to choose from a range of conditions for students to take quizzes and exams. These services are available at no cost and centrally supported by UK.
YuJa is a platform for hosting and sharing videos, audio recordings, and other digital media. It allows users to record and share content that can be used as part of course curricula, such as lectures and video assignments. Students can access the course materials on their own schedule, enabling them to review core concepts through lecture recordings and subject-specific multimedia content.
