Bluejeans Tips & Tricks

So, your professor has scheduled a Bluejeans session, either for a live class or for “virtual office hours”.  The best way to connect to Bluejeans is with the actual app installed on either your computer or mobile device.

On a computer, you will require at least a working microphone, but a camera is even better.

Connecting to Bluejeans requires the “Meeting ID”.  This is the 9-digit number that was sent to you by the prof.  If you only received a link (ie. https://bluejeans.com/123456789) the meeting ID will be the 9 numbers at the end, although on most computers, tapping on the link will open the app if you already have it installed.

The single biggest tip to ensuring a smooth experience on Bluejeans is to ensure that if you’re not speaking, you mute your microphone.  Do this by clicking on this icon at the top of your Bluejeans window:

Sometimes (especially on a computer more so than a phone or tablet), getting the camera and microphone to work properly in Bluejeans can be an issue.  Bluejeans has a support article with tips to assist in troubleshooting this.  ITS can also help, if you have tried these steps and are still having issues.  Email helpdesk@ubishops.ca from your BU email account and we’ll contact you.
