1981 Audio Conferencing Handbook. Paper P-117.
Rowan, Paul D.
This handbook outlines ways to conduct audio conferences, provides a review of the kinds of equipment needed, analyzes various cost factors, and offers guidelines for establishing an appropriate role for this technology in a human service environment. The results of an audio conference project designed for a service dealing with developmentally disabled persons in Vermont illustrate decision-making and problem solving techniques that can be used in any type of human service organization to help choose an appropriate communications channel for the desired services. The handbook includes sections on assessing organizational needs, setting up a conferencing system, designing an audio conference, and maintaining a conferencing network beyond its preliminary funding stages. Appendices provide information on equipment suppliers, providers of conference bridging services, and publications pertaining to teleconferencing programs and techniques. (MER)
