Italian Students and Virtual Access

Session Abstract

We adopted videoconferencing systems so that students can access places where they are not admitted for security or safety reasons, or just because they are too numerous to fit into laboratories, or to visit farms & industrial plants. Through videoconferencing they can be trained or/and experienced without moving from their classroom. We use H.320 videoconferencing while visiting farms, because in Italy such places have ISDN lines instead of broadband internet connection. H.323 (768kbps) videoconferencing is used from laboratories in the campus to train students about security and execution of dangerous/delicate experiments. Usually all material is recorded and encoded for further study (using RealMedia or Windows Media format).
