Absent Students Want to Attend Traditional Classes via Webcam

Posted by Dr. Laura Guertin

Something I’m still thinking about… not that I want my students to start ‘beaming’ in via a webcam to my classes, but I will be using Skype this week in the classroom for the first time.  I have a guest speaker from water.org that will speak to my EARTH 111U class (Water: Science and Society).  I think this is the way to connect students with professionals from across the globe, especially when we don’t have the resources to get them face-to-face on campus.
