The video conference software is the answer for impart quality education to each and everyone and to reach the international institutes without thinking of the expenses involved.

Reaching the underprivileged:
Despite the tremendous efforts of the government there are still a large number of illiterates in our society. The problem is that there are still many places which are not accessible for teachers. The government can set up video conferencing centers in the nearby towns with its different nodes in various interior regions. With this facility it is much easier for the teachers to reach the students and educate them.

Live practical classes:
The time has come to give our students the taste of the real life. Students retain the knowledge for a longer time which they have experienced themselves instead of being told. They can be taken to different parts of the world to show them the real picture, they can witness a live surgery going on in the OT, they can see the flora and fauna sitting in their class, they can share their experiences with students of other countries; all this is possible with video conferencing setup in the schools.

Foreign language classes:
In smaller cities it becomes very difficult to get a foreign language teacher and with globalization it has become necessary to learn one or two foreign languages. The best option for this is to get some online teacher. But for proper learning, classroom environment is must. Not a problem with Educational Video Conferencing at our side, we can create a virtual classroom.
