Case Studies

The following case studies have been prepared to illustrate the many and varied uses of videoconferencing using the Welsh Video Network.  The WVN is grateful to all the contributors for their valuable assistance with the preparation of these case studies.

We hope that you will find these case studies of interest, and that they may enhance your  use of videoconferencing.  I
f you have experience of videoconferencing that you feel might be of interest to others in the form of a case study, please e-mail the Project Administrator.

Videoconferencing with Cardiff Museum (added 14 October 2003)

On the 28th March 2003, during the Wrexham Science Festival, Yale College utilized their videoconferencing studio to link up with an expert in archaeology from Cardiff Museum – the first time that the studio at Yale had been used for teaching and learning.

Coastal Zone Law - Marine Science

A series of ten lectures delivered via videoconferencing from Cape Town, South Africa to the University of Wales, Bangor.  The lectures made use of Microsoft® PowerPoint® presentations sent via the videoconferencing link from Cape Town.  Supporting material was made available through a web page.  A case study assignment was set, submitted and returned via e-mail.


How the World Plays

A multi-cultural counselling project designed to bring groups of children together from around the world.  Its aim is to help children gain an understanding of their own “one square mile” and then to “teach” a partner research team from another part of the world what they have learned.

Special Needs Link-Up

A short series of videoconferences run for groups of students with learning difficulties.  There was no formal teaching carried out during the sessions, rather this was an opportunity for the students to meet each other and interact.  Staff found the results both startling and moving, and work is underway to try to incorporate videoconferences like this into the timetables of more groups of students with learning difficulties in the future.


Other examples of the uses of videoconferencing and details of how to find videoconferencing partners, both within Wales and internationally, can be found at Videoconferencing in Action.
