Videoconferencing Resource Page

Videoconferencing is a way to conduct a live event between two locations in real time. In Great Neck we use IP-based videoconferencing, which means that we transmit the audio and video for the videoconference over the Internet. This allows us to conduct a videoconference from any location in a school by simply plugging the videoconferencing equipment into a network port without incurring any usage charges (although some videoconferences do require a fee). Please see your library media specialist for more information about videoconferencing. You can also contact Andrea Gerstenblatt at Kennedy, Judy Mcclellan at South High, or Marc Epstein at Phipps, and/or use the resources provided below.
