    Video Conferencing uses

    Last year my school had a video confrencing suite installed from Tandberg and its had very little uses beside some use between us techs and the council department for meetings and traning purposes.

    We are looking at using it for more education purposes, we also have a portable setup on a portable TV stand with VGA output, so today we have setup the portable unit in an english classroom on the projector and board speakers to the conference room, in that room kids are acting out characters from a book they have been studying in English lessons and people in the classroom can ask them questions about there character Kids love abit of tech!

    Ive also been looking at education confrenece calls which would be great for lesson purposes e.g. Nation history museum

    Does anyone have any other locations or places which offer this conference service?

    List so far-
    Videoconference | Natural History Museum

    I've not tried any of these;

    Videoconferencing Content Providers

    We're in the same boat here, we're got a Lifesize that cost thousands and it's been used about 3 times.

    I've installed 3 suites over the years (not just in schools) and none of them were used after the first flurry of excitement. The only use that I ever saw of the original one we put in was myself getting interviewed for a job in NZ

    Our set was/is also a complete waste of money (75.000) because it was only used once when we opened a new school in another town.
    And now it is collecting dust and taking space we need for other stuff.
