Videoconferencing @ Centre

Videoconferencing is quickly becoming a championed method for connecting students with professionals in their field of study, broadening student world views and perspectives, and extending learning beyond the classroom. Options for videoconferencing span the spectrum in terms of price and complexity, yet Centre College prides itself on providing cost-effective solutions for faculty, staff, and students to connect with the world around them. Using programs designed to make these significant virtual connections when physical connections and visits aren’t as feasible help inspire growth while saving the college money. Alternatively, in times when faculty or staff are unable to make it campus, virtual connections can be a saving grace for conducting classes, interviews, or meetings. With the flexibility to continue conducting business-as-usual, individuals and the college as a whole benefit.
