UHI aims high with videoconferencing
The UHI Millennium Institute, which offers vocational university-level courses to remote parts of Scotland, has expanded its use of videoconferencing.
The move will enable students across all of the institute's partner colleges to sit in on lectures taking place at any of its 15 sites.
The institute has been using videoconferencing since 1997, but its use has grown rapidly this year, said Bob Brandie, senior videoconferencing technician at UHI. The institute has held 1,675 video meetings in the first three months of this year.
It is using set-top units from Tandberg that integrate a wide-angle camera view, flatscreen monitor, desktop units and offer multimedia presentation tools.
