Videoconferencing allows live two-way video and audio interaction between two or more "remote" sites. Sites could be people at home, schools, businesses, or organizations in the local area, somewhere in Michigan, or anywhere in the world. The conference could be point-to-point (one site connected to just one other site) or it could be multiple connections from a variety of videoconferencing hardware, Macs & PCs.
