With this setup, the remote students can view their classmates and vice versa, presentations are visible to all students, and all parties can be heard. As a best practice, the in-person student should present before the remote ones. This order will simplify the number of technological steps.

In order to conduct hybrid presentations, a webcam should be checked out. Request a webcam on a Tripod form. Steps should be taken prior to the day of presentations. On the day of presentations, both the cynap device and the professor's personal laptop should be utilized.
