Video conferencing is a
communications technology that integrates video and voice to
connect remote users with each other as if they were in the same
room. Each user needs a computer, webcam, microphone, and broadband
internet connection for participation in video conferencing.
Users see and hear each other in real-time, allowing natural
conversations not possible with voice-only communications
terms, students are located in one room at Tauhara College and are
connected via the above equipment to a teacher in another school.
Teachers deliver their lesson to all students that have ‘dialled
into his school’. Students have a one hour lesson once a week. Work
is completed either on line or in written form. Assessments are
completed at Tauhara College under supervision and then posted off
for marking to the video conferencing teacher.
