Schools using video conferencing to get experts into classrooms


Story by Tim Sandle

Many schools are increasingly using video conferencing to allow experts and well-known personalities to talk and interact with students.

Gone are the days when all students had to look forward to was an old text book and an occasional visit from a local ‘personality’. By utilizing video conferencing, top experts and television presenters can give lectures and talks to students from hundreds or thousands of miles away. This enriches the curriculum as well as highlighting the growing pace of globalization.

Video conferencing is the means of using computers to provide a video-link between two or more people. Instead of just talking to someone by telephone, people are able to see each other as well. Video conferencing also allows graphics to be uploaded, along with maps and videos. Multipoint videoconferencing allows three or more participants to sit in a virtual conference room and communicate as if they were sitting right next to each other. It is a growing medium in both business and in the education sector.
