The final day of the TNT conference runs half a day so that folks have an opportunity to drive home. Grand Forks is on the eastern edge of the state so many conference participants have a long way to go.
I attended a session today sponsored by the (North Dakota Interactive Video Network. K12 videoconferencing in North Dakota is a big deal primarily because small schools can share resources (i.e, mostly instructors) with other schools in a cost effective manner. We are talking H.323 (IP) applications.
The session had a broader purpose and spent a considerable amount of time promoting on-line resources not involving other ND schools. The basic idea is that ???providers??? are offering educational videoconferencing experiences ??? typically for a modest price (say $100 or so) and these experiences (often interactive) can be used to expand student educational opportunities.
Some Examples: You may have to explore to locate the resources provided – try locating “educational resources”.
