The Power of Toolsets: Web Video,Web Conferencing, and Teleconferencing
In this series we develop a better understanding of the role of web video, conferencing with simple tools such as Skype or GoToMeeting and the range of teleconference options available to instructors in K-12, Higher Ed and Continuing Ed. We discuss some of the tools that allow flexibility and creativity to become another facet of education, but also touch on some of the challenges for IT supporting a variety of platforms and content types. He blogs extensively on a variety of social media and instructional technology topics at ProfessorJosh.com
