A “Meet-Me Conference” will allow callers to dial into a given number to join a conference. Anyone who dials the number can join the conference.
You, as the conference controller, must publish the number to be called, the time the conference will start, and have it initiated before the conference can be joined.
Rose State College can host conference calls from on or off campus. The numbers you publish are predefined and you may select any of the numbers in the following range depending on the caller location:
| All callers are on campus
| 140 through 147
| Number selected
| On/Off Campus
| On/Off Campus
If all callers are on campus, use a number in the range 140 through 147 and publish this number. This is also the number you will use to initiate the conference.
If callers are from off campus or a mix of on and off campus, you will initiate number 148 and publish this number for on campus callers and 733-7948 for off campus callers.An additional number for on/off campus callers is 149 for on campus and 733-7942 for off campus callers.
