Virtual Classrooms in DimDim

Here is another great use of interactive white board space.

DimDim has announced the creation of a new Virtual Classroom pack that is an add on to the current video conferencing software that you use today. They have focused this development towards the K-12 and higher ed systems. Here are the specs:

1. Support for up to 40 students per virtual classroom
2. Customization for teachers, including landing pages, logos, and other images.
3. Integrated support for video chat
4. Built in VoIP service, plus 10 free audio conferencing accounts

Now with all of the great things that you can do with this, from general classroom instruction to staff development, there is a cost for this add on feature. The services price point is based on a per year contract of $2199

Now this seems like an extraordinary cost to put out in these economic times so here are some Grant opportunities that you can look at that might help to ease the pain and possibly make this opportunity a reality.
