More teachers in a Georgia district will teach via videoconferencing this year as part of an effort to increase class availability and cut costs. In Hall County, videoconference technology was available last year at two schools as a pilot, but this year, high schools districtwide will be outfitted with the technology. "It's high-definition and runs at 30 frames, or as fast as the human eye blinks. The audio is so quick that students at two different schools can do oral responses, which is critical for foreign language classes," the district's director of technology said.
