WHAT ARE THE ADVANTAGES OF VIDEO CONFERENCING IN THE EDUCATION SECTOR?
Below mentioned are some of the advantages of Video Conferencing in the Education Sector.
BETTER COLLABORATION BETWEEN SCHOOLS
Previously, two schools used to collaborate between themselves by sending in teachers and staff for training and management experience. This required a lot of time and money on the part of the school system to arrange such visits. Now with video conferencing, two schools can collaborate with each other in real-time without any traveling or scheduling hassles. Through video conferencing, schools can now interact with each other in real-time environments, chat with their counterparts, share screens, and use whiteboards for honing their skills for quality and effective education.
IMPROVES THE LEARNING PROCESS
Through Video Conferencing, education is not limited to what is being taught in the classrooms. Children living in rural areas who do not get the right infrastructure for quality education can now get that through Video Conferencing. The interactive mode of teaching makes the learning process more interesting and easily understandable. If required, expert opinion on a certain subject can be sought through video conferencing. Video Conferencing also allows recording of teaching sessions and thus if a student misses a class then he/she can go through the archives and go through what had been taught in the class.
