How to control the classroom camera

We have created several presets on the desktop to assist with control the classroom camera. The classroom camera is the one in the back of the room by the entrance door. 

Camera presets have been set to provide an assortment of views for instructional styles. Manually adjusting the camera presets is not currently possible.

 Zoom Preset Desktop Shortcut IconsPreset 0 = Wide general purpose view of the space (includes the instructional technology as well as a view of students)

 Preset 1 = Focuses on the front of the room onto the whiteboard cart (Technology cart with the Instructor podium) 

 Preset 2 = A tight view of the entire whiteboard
