Teleconference Infrastructure

Synchronous tele-education (distance education) is a real time training that delivers education and instruction to students who are not physically present in a traditional setting such as a classroom. The trainer and the trainees are interconnected via a network, allowing audio and video conference, while exchanging files, applications, and even electronic blackboard are available.

Synchronous tele-education offers the immediacy of contact between instructor and trainees, adding a new dimension to the learning object. The students have voice and visual communication with the remote instructor. Tele-education saves precious time and money for students and trainers eliminating the need for transportations.

Tele-education and tele-conference room

A new tele-conference room has been formed and suitably equipped in the multi-purpose building of the Institute, aiming to the upgrade of the quality of the educational process.

The hall consists of four distinct but cooperating elements:

  1. the videoconferencing system,
  2. an audiovisual installation,
  3. two computers,
  4. and four peripheral devices.

Each of these systems can operate either independently or in collaboration with each other or all of the others:

 

The room is commonly used for:

  • Conferences.
  • Training of small groups via modern teaching methods.
  • Videoconferencing between the institute and various officials of private and public sector.
  • Connection to remote audiences for broadcasting standard courses (undergraduate and postgraduate level), lectures, laboratory demonstrations, etc.
  • Connection to remote lectures (undergraduate and postgraduate level), laboratory demonstrations, etc.

The tele-conference infrastructure is suported by the Network Operating Center of the T.E.I. of Central Macedonia.
