Special Videoconf. Rate Is for Educators

LINK-VTC offers a special videoconferencing rate for educational institutions using multipoint bridging to deliver courses. The firm will dial out and connect to all sites for a flat fee of $65 per hour/site. This price includes all transmission and domestic bridging fees. When an entire semester is scheduled in advance, the flat fee locks in the per-hour rate for the whole term. Worcester Polytechnic, for instance, offered undergraduate engineering courses this summer under the new rate scheme. Other special distance learning programs, including training for new videoconference administrators, are available. LINK-VTC is carrier-independent and the third largest multipoint bridging service provider in the world. LINK-VTC, Boulder, CO, (800) LINK-VTC.
