This article discusses how schools across the US are using the latest videoconference and audio/video streaming technologies creatively to move to the next level of their very specific needs. At the Georgia Institute of Technology in Atlanta, the technology that is the backbone of the school's extensive distance learning program has to be responsive, flexible, and above all, reliable. The Distance Learning department needs to cover 25 to 30 videoconference connections a day to support 125 courses per semester during the main academic year, says George Wright, associate director of distance learning. To handle this workload, the department relies on 10 Tandberg 6000 codecs, three 880 codecs, and one 1000. Georgia Tech recently chose to update an older bridge with the Tandberg MPS 200 MCU bridge to support its heavy videoconferencing load, in part because the department already had all Tandberg codecs, but also because through experience, Wright has been convinced of the reliability and longevity of the product.
