Abstract or Summary

Since 2010 the Waikato Institute of Technology (Wintec) has been delivering aspects of the Bachelor of Midwifery programme, using Video Conferencing (VC). Increasing demands to provide student support and to include estra cultural streams in delivering the course "Cultural Safety" has placed extreme pressure on existing VC equipment and rooms. Wintec are members of the KAREN network and are paying a yearly subscription to use the KAREN VC Bridge. To ease the increasing pressure on VC equipment Wintec investigated the use of the desktop VC solution, Scopia, freeley available on the KAREN Bridge. This demonstration will allow participants to review the Scopia Desktop Client and gain an insight on how it may be employed in an educational context without the need for specialised web conferencing equipment.
