Video conferencing

LRAT supports two video-conferencing platforms: Zoom and Microsoft Teams.

  • Zoom is the popular choice. Some of our teaching rooms are Zoom Rooms with the added functionality needed for simultaneous bimodal teaching.
  • Teams is tightly integrated into Microsoft 365 and is increasingly the favoured choice.


Teams is bundled as part of Office 365 and authenticates using your active directory username and password. There are sdeveral Teams room installations in both college and profesiional services. The room in invited to the conference and those in the room can all join in.


Zoom authentication now uses your  University email address and your Active Directory password. More details are available in a knowledgebase article. For support email
