Campus Gjøvik and Ålesund both have Swivl equipment that can be lent out on request. With Swivl equipment you can film teaching without the classroom needing to have any extra equipment. However, there are GDPR challenges with the use of Swivl when students are present as it is difficult to record without filming them. We recommend it only as an emergency solution, for example during guest lectures. To borrow Swivl equipment you can contact Paul Ole Hegstad in Gjøvik or Audun Andreassen in Ålesund.
