Videoconferencing uses telecommunications of audio and video to bring people at different sites together for a meeting or a class. This can be as simple as a conversation between two people in private offices (point-to-point) or involve several sites (multipoint) with more than one person in large rooms at different sites.

Besides the audio and visual transmission of people, video conferencing can be used to share documents, computer-displayed information, and whiteboards.

Instructors have tools available such as document cameras, computer, DVD and VCR, which could be used to enhance the learning experience.

With most systems you can display:

  • Papers using the electronic document camera
  • Show information direct from your personal computer
  • Play a pre-recorded video
  • Record your own presentation

Benefits of Videoconferencing

  • Connect different sites at the same time.

  • Cut costs for business travel.
