    Very nice article in regards to use of video conferencing in education. Quality of video conference is always an important criterion while conducting video conferences, web conferences, webinars etc. One always need to use quality web-video conferencing services such as WebEx, gomeetnow, gotomeeting or can even consider deploying on premise web-video conferencing appliance such as RHUB appliances.

    I'm proud to say that I work as a facilitator at the Uintah Basin Campus in Vernal. The Distance Learning program is a wonderful tool for students in rural areas who need to work, but still want to get a good education. And it is unique to Utah. When my son moved to Texas this past summer, he wanted to attend classes from the agricultural college there (Texas A&M) while he worked, so I checked on their website, and there is nothing to compare with USU's program. I have enjoyed getting to know the students who come in each day. I work with a wonderful group of co-workers who do a great job of keeping this program running smoothly.

    If you want to continue...or begin...your education, check out USU's Distance Learning program, especially if you are a non-traditional student, and moving to a "college town" is not an option for you. You will be glad you did.
