Videoconference Center

The Videoconference Center is housed in the library on the 2nd floor in room 1L-220A. Using videoconferencing technology, two or more people at different locations can see and hear each other at the same time. Participants can also share files, graphics, and multiple computer applications (such as PowerPoint) for collaboration. This rich communications technology offers new possibilities for our faculty, who are now using videoconferencing systems for a variety of purposes, such as, formal instructions both nationally and internationally (courses and lessons). In addition, the system allows the faculty to bring guest speakers and experts to participate in multi-school collaboration projects and professional activities.
