FLICC Meeting Announcement 2000-9
2000 FLICC Information Technology Update--Monday, April 17, 2000
Library Information Services and Instruction for Remote Users: Technologies and Strategies
Technologies for distance communications, at ever more affordable costs, are blossoming everywhere. These technologies allow for distance learning, where students attend classes from their homes and work places. But the technologies are applicable in many distant communications settings, including libraries with geographically dispersed clientele. This program will focus on the technologies of distance learning (or distributed learning) including Web-based chat, interactive training, and video communications. Join your colleagues to learn how libraries can apply these technologies and support their agency's distance learning programs. See a draft of the agenda below.
