Videoconferencing provides students with the opportunity to learn by participating in two-way communication forums. Benefits that videoconferencing can provide in campus environments include:

  • guest lecturers brought in classes from other institutions
  • researchers collaborating with colleagues at other institutions on a regular basis without loss of time due to travel
  • schools with multiple campuses collaborating and sharing professors
  • faculty members participating in thesis defenses at other institutions
  • administrators on tight schedules collaborating on budget preparation from different parts of campus
  • tele-seminars
