Telelearning FAQs

Frequently Asked Questions

What is the difference between a teleconference and a video conference?

A teleconference involves the reception of a video/audio signal via satellite and interaction via phone, fax or e-mail. This technology enables people on the receiving end to see and hear the program but the origination site will not be able to see them.

A videoconference is a more fully interactive technology. Sites will typically connect over T-1 phone lines and they will be able to see and hear each other. Both facilities are typically outfitted with cameras, microphones and monitors to provide two-way visual and audio interaction.

LCC has facilities that will accommodate either technology.
