Videoconferencing in the Classroom from Winter Faculty Institute 2012 hosted by UD Capture In today's global society, bringing experts together from across the country and around the world is vital to research, teaching and learning. But as the cost of travel continues to rise, it is often impractical. How then, can we bring guest speakers into the classroom, or teach to students in a foreign country, or even meet with a thesis committee at another University hundreds of miles away? One answer is videoconferencing, and there are a variety of conferencing solutions offered on campus. In this session we will explore the possible uses of videoconferencing and how it can enhance the classroom experience for your students. We will also discuss the actual conferencing software and facilities available to faculty through Academic Technology Services.
For more information on the various types of videoconferencing and the facilities offered on campus, please see our website:
