TelePresence for Administrative Functions:

"The English Department uses TelePresence to conduct interviews on a regular basis. It's easy to use and more comfortable than a conference call or Skype. TelePresence has substantially improved our searches; it enables us to get to know the candidates better (and vice versa), which increases the efficiency of our search process. It also serves as a good advertisement for the University: using TelePresence indicates to candidates that we are up-to-date and well-supported with educational technology."
Matt Sewell, Ph.D., Associate Professor of English at Minnesota State University, Mankato
