    Videoconferencing is a way to conduct a live event between two locations in real time. In Great Neck we use IP-based videoconferencing, which means that we transmit the audio and video for the videoconference over our network and through the Internet. This allows us to conduct a videoconference from any location in a school using Skype or Facetime from a desktop computer, laptop, or iPad for person-to-person videoconferencing, or by plugging a Polycom videoconferencing unit into a network port for large group and whole-class videoconferencing. Some virtual field trips conducted via videoconference are free; some incur a fee. Please see your library media specialist for more information about videoconferencing. You can also contact Marc Epstein at Phipps and/or use the resources provided here.
