Monroe 2-Orleans BOCES offers several types of videoconferencing. We have portable equipment and can turn any room (that has access to the Internet) into a videoconferencing room. We have the capability to conference multiple locations together.

We have participated in videoconferences with other classrooms in our region, state, country and even internationally!  We have invited in experts like scientists and authors.  Classes have meet with experts at museums and had access to collections in museums around the country.

Staff have participated in meetings and professional development opportunities around the state and country.

In addition, per request, we also provide access to Skype.
