New Releases...Far Stone Technology's Virtual Class
Far Stone Technology's Virtual Class creates a virtual classroom environment over a computer network, allowing educators to broadcast data to all students on a network. The multimedia training program eliminates downtime needed for loading data on every student computer. It enriches computer-based classrooms with interactive tools such as instant forum capabilities, whiteboard multicasting, voice and text chatting and more. The system also allows educators to monitor any student's screen to check progress and take over if needed, or broadcast anyone's screen to the entire class. The educator can also stream live or prerecorded video and audio at 30 frames per second. Far Stone Technology Inc., Irvine, CA, (949) 458-3666, www.farstone.com.
