To provide the same classroom experiential learning for local and remote students, the BAE department at UGA has developed an "extended classroom" facility whereas all involved (teachers - local or remote; students - local or remote) can hear, see and otherwise interact with each other. Furthermore, in real time, all local and remote participants can annotate their personal versions of classroom activities being recorded into searchable multimedia files that they can take home to review and modify. This report also describes the adaptation of the above system to create a lower cost version with minimal IT resources and still delivered the basic instructional contents needed.
