Video Conferencing

We can assist with your videoconferencing needs using Adobe Connect, WebEx, or Polycom/IPTV for real-time, two-way video connections with guest lecturers, prospective students, or potential faculty hires. Videoconferencing can also be a dynamic addition to an online course that provides groups of students the chance to share their ideas in a robust, “face-to-face” environment that enables screen sharing, group document annotation, and much more.
