What is Vscene?
Developed specifically for the research and education sectors, Vscene removes geographical barriers and enables remote conferencing and collaboration. Vscene is a video conferencing service that has evolved out of education and research to deliver a seamless and intuitive service that meets the needs of its users. It allows you to establish links with other organisations or campuses, record lectures/classes, facilitate group work, assessments and feedback sessions or simply have a video conference.
