Video conferencing provides real time face-to-face interaction with sites virtually anywhere in the world. It is effectively used for distance education, group training, thesis presentations, job interviews, guest lecturers, and more.

Video conferencing benefits include:

  • cost saving: reduces travel costs and often allows for more participants, especially when more than two locations are involved.
  • time saving: the immediate connection created through video conferencing increases productivity, allowing for quicker decisions.

As video conferencing technology advances, more possibilities and uses arise. However, there is one consistent advantage of video conferencing: without leaving the local venue, video conferencing allows for a global reach into education and business opportunities.
