How can a classroom effectively interact with off-site experts and lecturers?

Jay LeBoeuf, a Lecturer in Stanford Arts and the Center for Computer Research, focused on how to integrate industry professionals and off-site experts more effectively into his MUSIC 152A and MUSIC 150P classrooms. Knowing that Skype and Facetime wouldn’t provide the interaction desired, learn how Jay successfully experimented with the Kubi – a robotic stand which integrates with an iPad – and became more convinced of the importance of feeling like you are having eye contact and connection during a remote video conference. Students felt like they were interacting in real time - not passively watching a video.
