Although these programs are at the cutting edge of technology, they are surprisingly simple to set up. Many schools already own the equipment necessary to host a videoconference.
Internet Connection and CODEC Interface
A broadband Internet connection is highly recommended. Although videoconferences are possible using a dial-up modem, the picture and sound quality is much better on broadband. The CODEC interface allows the connection to go through.
