You could purchase a Polycom ViaVideo camera - Ebay has one in auction for
$130. right now:

could connect to the Polycom at Otter Valley - or any of the high schools
that have the VILN equipment, for that matter - and have interactive video
over IP from their house. Get in touch with me if you want more info on how
to do this.

Subject: Closed Circuit TV or messenger with a webcam?
Sorry, about the double posts.
Does anyone have experience with closed circuit TV?
I have been asked to set this up for a student that can't come to school.
I would be happy to help, but don't know where to start.
This brings to mind something like messenger and a quality webcam? Does
anyone have experience with this?
Can someone please point me in the right direction?
