In videoconferencing, two or more people at different locations can see and hear each other at the same time. Videoconferencing offers possibilities for schools, colleges, and libraries to use these systems for a variety of purposes, including formal instruction (courses, lessons, and tutoring), connection with guest speakers and experts, multi-school project collaboration, professional activities, and community events.
Videoconferencing technology impacts student learning in a number of ways. Teaching professionals have observed that two-way videoconferences heighten students' motivation, and improve communication and presentation skills. Additionally, a virtual field trip increases the depth of learning and provides a forum for a greater connection with the outside world.
A videoconference can improve students' memory retention by appealing to a variety of different learning styles by including diverse media such as video and audio clips, graphics, animation, and computer applications. The visual connection and interaction among participants enhance understanding and allow both the content providers and the students to feel connected to one another.
