Coastal introduces videoconferencing classroom

Through the support of the S.C. National Guard, a state-of-the-art videoconferencing classroom has been installed in Coastal Carolina University's School of Continuing Studies, located on the second floor of University Hall on campus.

According to Peter Balsamo, dean of the School of Continuing Studies, videoconferencing is an interactive tool using video, computing and communications technology that allows individuals in different locations to meet face-to-face in real time. The system enables people from two or more locations worldwide to meet, saving time, money and travel hassles.

The classroom, equipped with an interactive television and cameras, allows for face-to-face meetings, training sessions, depositions or presentations. Coastal's technical team provides guidance and training throughout the videoconference session.

Fee for using the classroom is $225 per hour plus $55 per additional 15-minute increments. No charge for call-in meetings; call-out is $130 per hour for telecommunications charges. There is a non-refundable $50 reservation fee that is applied to the hourly rate. Videotaping is provided upon request for a $15 charge.

For more information on using the classroom, contact Jennifer Shinaberger at 349-2737 or Amanda Brown at 349-2294.
