Content Providers now have the opportunity to loan a complete videoconferencing kit for up to 3 months,* to help enable them to videoconference with the education sector.

Benefits to Content Providers

The Videoconferencing Loan Scheme will enable prospective content providers to trial videoconferencing equipment and content without having to commit to purchasing the necessary videoconference hardware. It will also enable content providers to deliver one-off videoconferencing events managed by Jisc.

Benefits to schools

Jisc anticipates that the Videoconferencing Loan Scheme will lead to an increase in the number of videoconferencing content providers delivering educational content to schools. It should also provide schools with a wider range of available content and therefore more choice. These factors will in turn encourage more schools to embed videoconferencing appropriately into teaching and learning.

For more information please contact Paul Bonnett.

The Videoconferencing loan equipment includes: 
Tanberg C20 (including codec, camera and microphone)

24 inch HD LCD monitor

AVerVision SPB350 Document Camera
