Video Teleconferencing: The KTC’s Move to Distance LearningBy Fishman, Iris; Nathaniel H. Kornreich Technology Center Online,
Publication Date: 2002
Article discussing the uses of video teleconferencing, which can involve the training of professionals located at sites across the nation on assistive technology (AT) and augmentative and alternative communication (AAC) issues. Videoconferencing allows the presenter to stay at his or her home site while providing demonstrations, explanations, and videotaped content to remote sites around the country and the world. Videoconferencing has been used to demonstrate the latest developments in technology by manufacturers of AT devices. In December 1999, Prentke Romich, a manufacturer of communication devices, presented the Language Activity Monitor (LAM), which records the characters produced by an AAC device. The LAM allows clinicians to gauge the effectiveness of communication aids or software.
