Notice:

BCNET has discontinued the BlueJeans Video Conferencing Service Effective March 31, 2021.

Zoom desktop video conferencing and Microsoft Teams are available for all UVic staff and faculty to replace the BCNET BlueJeans Service.

Zoom is a cloud-based video conferencing service you can use to virtually meet with others – either by video, audio only, or both. It allows participants to share screens collaborate and conduct group activities from nearly any device.

Microsoft Teams is a part of Microsoft 365, a cloud-based service that combines Microsoft Office apps such as Word, Excel, and PowerPoint with cloud services like OneDrive, Microsoft Stream, and Microsoft Teams. Microsoft 365 will enable University of Victoria faculty, staff, and students to create, share, and collaborate securely on any device.

Please note any recurring or future BlueJeans meetings will not function after March 31, 2021.

If you require assistance to transition from BlueJeans to Zoom or MS Teams please contact your DSS support or if not DSS supported email a request for assistance to helpdesk@uvic.ca.
