Sometimes it’s just not possible or practical to have a face-to-face meeting with two or more people. Sometimes a telephone conversation or conference call is adequate. Other times, an email exchange is adequate. Video conferencing adds another possible alternative.

Consider video conferencing when:

  • A live conversation is needed;
  • Visual information is an important component of the conversation
  • The parties of the conversation can’t physically come to the same location;
  • The expense or time of travel is a consideration.

Here are a few examples of how video conferencing can benefit people around campus:

  • Traveling Employee keeps in touch with colleagues while gone for a week at a conference
  • Guest lecturer brought into a class from another institution
  • Researcher or personnel collaborates with colleagues at other institutions on a regular basis without loss of time due to travel
  • Video Arraignments- Save on security of transporting defendants
  • Administrators on tight schedules collaborate on a budget preparation from different parts of campus
  • Faculty committee auditions a scholarship candidate
  • Virtual Learning Environments for Employees or Students
  • Candidates can interview with an employer in another city

Video Conferencing is very useful whenever there is a clear communication need, and the benefits described by those using video conferencing systems include:

  • Reduced travel costs
  • Face to face rather than telephone meetings
  • Better quality teaching
  • Easier collaborative working
