Managing Videoconferencing is Building Ubiquity, Cutting Costs, and Communicating Easily: Not Just Talking Heads

Wednesday, January 1, 1992


This presentation will describe experiences of three State Universities implementing a video conferencing system. Video conferencing is an electronic meeting in which geographically separate groups communicate using live interactive audio, video, and computer technology. The technical aspects of video conferencing, while somewhat challenging, pale in comparison to other aspects that must be addressed to successfully introduce this new technology.Many universities are turning to video conferencing as travel costs increase and when administrators' time is being stretched tighter than ever. Universities are being asked to do more with less. The solution is video conferencing for university business meetings and for the delivery of distance education. Technological improvements, lower prices, ease of use, and increased availability are making video conferencing an option and a necessity for universities.
