    Remote Participation





    The Center for Research on Collaboratories and Technology Enhanced Learning Communities (COTELCO) will enable remote participation in the GigaNet DC Workshop.  For those unable to travel to Washington, DC, we will utilize webconferencing technologies (Elluminate Live!) to allow remote participants to see the slides, video, and hear audio of the symposium presenters, and if time allows to ask requestions.  Remote participants will be able to hear, see, and participate in the discussion going on in DC.
