Check Your Computer Readiness Online

We have created a self-paced technology check meeting room to assist you with setting up your computer for Breeze meetings that have audio. This meeting room will be open 24/7, so you can check it out anytime. This site does NOT verify Breeze login (please see next section to test your username and password). You only need to visit this site once and then you should be ready for your live meeting sessions. Once connected, please follow the instructions on the slides in the meeting room.

 

Instructions to connect:

  1. Modify any pop-up blockers to enable or allow pop-ups for the site: meetonline.uhv.edu
  2. Make sure you have the Flash Player plug-in installed on your computer. You can download the latest version (free) from http://www.adobe.com
  3. Turn your speakers on/up.
  4. Open your browser and go to https://meetonline.uhv.edu/easytechcheck/
  5. Click the button to Enter as a Guest and then type your first and last name in the space provided. Click Enter.
  6. The meeting room will open. Depending on your connection speed, it may take a few minutes to load the meeting room and contents.
  7. Once the meeting room has loaded, adjust your connection speed to match your internet connection. Go to Meeting | My Connection Speed and hoose either Modem (for dialup), DSL (for DSL or cable), or LAN (for office or school networks).
  8. Click the Play ( |> ) button below the slides to begin the presentation. You should hear the audio begin playing.

Student Login to Breeze Meetings

This section provides information for meetings that require user login to access. Some Breeze meetings will require registered user login, while others will allow guest login. Your instructor or meeting host will notify you of the login requirements.

IMPORTANT! You must know your UHV 7-digit Student ID # (PeopleSoft ID) AND have previously changed your initial password BEFORE attempting to log into a Breeze chat room for the first time. Your initial login password is pre-expired and must be changed before you can access campus resources such as Breeze. For information on changing your initial password, go to “First Time Logging In”.

If you need assistance changing or resetting your password, you must contact the Help Desk, 361-570-4888 (the Breeze support personnel cannot reset passwords)

 

Test Your Breeze Login:

  1. Click this link to login to a sample Breeze chat room. https://meetonline.uhv.edu/testchatlogin/
  2. Type your UHV username and password
    1. username = 7-digit PeopleSoft student ID # (DO NOT type the uhv\ - only the 7 numbers)
    2. password = same as your student email password (see steps above)
  3. Upon successful login, a meeting room will open with a text chat window and instructions to the left.
  4. If you cannot login (i.e., the login page refreshes but the password field has been cleared), you have entered an incorrect username and/or password. Verify that you can login to your UHV Student Email first. If you can login to your student email, but not the Breeze meeting room, contact Breeze support at breeze@uhv.edu

 

Login to your course meeting room:

  1. Click the link provided by your instructor or type the URL directly into your browser. Each meeting room will have a unique web address.
  2. On the login page, type your UHV username and password.
    1. username = 7-digit PeopleSoft student ID # (DO NOT type the uhv\ - only the 7 numbers)
    2. password = same as your student email password (see steps above)
  3. For private course chat rooms - upon login you will immediately enter the meeting room; for hosted meetings - upon login you will wait for host or presenter to grant your access into the room.

 

If you have any technical problems, please contact Breeze Support at breeze@uhv.edu

Suggested Headset Microphones

Breeze Meetings allow voice-over-IP which means that meeting presenters and participants can talk with each other online in the meeting room. Due to the nature of some meetings, only the presenter or host may have their audio enabled. Check with your meeting host to determine if the meeting will allow participants to use a microphone during the meeting.

In a Breeze Meeting, you should only use headset microphones instead of desktop microphones in order to minimize feedback noise from your speakers when your microphone is on. Features for headset microphones should include noise-canceling and in-line volume and mute controls. You may purchase headset microphones online or in-store through electronics or office suppliers. Quality headset microphones can be purchased for about $20 and use the standard audio jacks. Sample brands include:

  • Logitech Premium Stereo Headset (P/N 980369-0403)
    [can be purchased for <$20]
  • Altec Lansing (AHS20)
  • Plantronics (AUD60)
  • Sony (DR-140UP)

You can also buy quality USB headset/microphones. They usually start around $30. Examples are

  • Logitech Premium USB Headset 350
  • Plantronics (DSP500)
