Abstract

This chapter explores the modality and benefits of videoconferencing from the content provider’s perspective. The content provider as “field expert” is discussed along with the benefits of providing nationwide outreach to K-12 educators and students via a cost-effective, interactive media. Applications of videoconferencing are addressed in addition to the perceptions of the provider in such areas as the needs of the K-12 educational community, methods and tools for presenting successful virtual field trips, and evidence of impact through informal teacher feedback and a professional study conducted in 2000. The author also addresses how providers can reach out to and collaboratively work with other organizations to enhance and build capacity.
