Videoconferencing uses audio and video telecommunication to conduct live conferences between two or more people. This technology enables a student and instructor to virtually be in one classroom while physically being miles apart. Grande Prairie Regional College has recently updated and increased the number of videoconference suites. We also have in our inventory a mobile unit that can be taken to any classroom within the College. Classes are continuously being offered to GPRC Fairview and our West Yellowhead campuses Jasper, Hinton, and Edson.
We use videoconferencing as a unique educational tool to virtually bring our instructors and rural students together for full-course delivery and instruction. This convenient, cost effective technology improves educational access and flexibility for students looking to further their education.
