A web conferencing course is conducted on multiple campuses with the use of Microsoft Lync, an online collaboration tool that instructors use to present course materials. Students watch and listen to the lecture using a computer, and in some cases, the instructor may use a Web camera. The students and teacher communicate by voice, text chat, and question and answer interaction. Students are required to purchase a headset with microphone (available at the CVTC bookstore).
A headset with microphone is required for web conferencing courses and is available for purchase from the CVTC Bookstore. Students should purchase this equipment prior to the first day of class.
