Our Alternative to Videoconferencing

Last Spring, we were fortunate to be able to videoconference with George Washington Unversity School of Law the Government Ethics class each week to 4 students who were taking the class but were externing in DC.(See related posts: https://albanylawtech.wordpress.com/2008/01/24/spring-semester-tech-happenings/ and https://albanylawtech.wordpress.com/2008/06/04/videoconferencing-survey-results/).

This spring, we have 6 students participating in the Semester in Government externship in DC but GW cannot provide these students with a room and videoconferencing capability.

As a result, we will try using Adobe Connect. The plan is to have students go to: http://albanylaw.acrobat.com/bierman and with a webcam be able to participate in class.  The worst case scenario will be that we have to disable their audio & video and they will see & hear the class and participate through texting in the chat pod.

We hope to test it on Jan. 8, 2009, a week before the real class begins.
