Distance Education/Learning

This VTC system can be used in a Video Tele-Training (VTT) mode where the instructor and students are at separate geographical locations.  This has the obvious advantage of saving travel time and cost of either the instructor or the students.  If you are interested in learning more about using this VTC system for VTT please contact a NAFRI Course Coordinator or a member of the NAFRI Audio Visual staff.
