Last modified: October 22, 2018

The classrooms’ HD video, audio and content sharing capabilities enable instructors, staff and students to interact between two or more locations more naturally and effectively than traditional video conferencing. There is an immersive telepresence classroom located on each campus, one in the Advanced Technology & Academic Centre (AT 5041) in Thunder Bay and the other in Simcoe Hall (OA 2020) at Orillia. The Thunder Bay room can accommodate 28 people and the Orillia room 18 people.
