Video call software and equipment
Read our guide to video calls before your first week of teaching.
The guide tells you what software you need and how to access it.
It also includes equipment suggestions, and tips on getting the best out of your online sessions.
As a Hallam student you can download Office365 for free.
This gives you access to a range of Microsoft software on your personal device, including Outlook for your University emails and Teams for collaborative work. To log in to your Outlook, use your Hallam credentials - firstname.lastname@example.org and your University password.
We recommend that you check Outlook regularly before you arrive, as we will be sending you reminders about pre-arrival tasks and Welcome Week activities.
