You can easily have meetings remotely on your computer. Microsoft Teams, a service included in Microsoft 365, is the recommended tool for setting up meetings online with several people.

Tools for e-meetings

When arranging a webinar you can choose between Teams or Zoom.

Tips for e-meetings

  • Log in a couple of minutes in advance and make sure everything is working.
  • Make sure all participants have their cameras activated.
  • Select a meeting moderator who will be in charge of the meeting.
  • Greet everyone, or, if needed, let them introduce themselves.​
  • If the number of participants is more than five, please mute your microphones to avoid disturbing background sounds.
  • Make sure everyone gets the chance to talk.
  • Wrap up the meeting, repeat decisions and next steps.

Conference equipment

To ensure sound and video quality for e-meetings with several people in one room you can purchase conference equipment. The all-in-one conference equipment includes camera, speaker and microphone. You can connect it directly to your computer via USB, no mounting required.

There are several alternatives, depending on the number of persons participating in the meeting. You can find the equipment in the order portal Wisum at Produkter & tjänster, IT-produkter / telefoni / KI - e-möten.

Tips on headsets, cameras, tripods and conference equipment can also be found on the page Tips for equipment for work and teaching at a distance.

Use KI-themed background for external e-meetings

  • Use a KI-themed background image when having e-meetings with external participants.
  • Make sure to have a clean background or a green screen behind you in order to make the KI-theme work.
