What is Video Conferencing?

This is where two or more locations communicate by simultaneous two-way (or more) video and audio transmissions.  Using a direct link means that we can see and talk to people anywhere in the world in “real time” using the computer or whiteboard screen to have a conversation as if we were in the same room.


Video Conference Development Group

The Redbridge Video Conference Development group hold their meetings at Oaks Park High School.  Members can come to Oaks Park (for the social get together) or join the meeting via VC if travel is a problem.  This group consists of Primary and Secondary schools from across the borough who work co-operatively to promote the use of Video Conferencing in our schools. (see list to right hand side of this page). All schools are welcome to join this group.
