Evolving Video Conferencing Technologies: New Opportunities for Integration
Thursday, January 1, 1998
As the connectivity, affordability, and functionality of desktop and small room video conferencing systems have improved in the past two years, Baylor University has begun to incorporate distance education and video conferencing capabilities into technology classrooms as standard equipment. Integrating video conferencing into multimedia classrooms allows guest speakers for classes, interactive collaborative projects between students, and experimentation with new applications of video technology in the curriculum. This paper discusses how emerging telecommunications technologies, standards-based network design, and the development of a suitable network infrastructure are all critical in effectively implementing innovative teaching and learning applications.
