Objective of Collaboration
Our center has created a connection with several secondary schools in Kazakhstan that would like to have video conferences with English-speaking classrooms. Our center will facilitate the connection, which will be through Skype, free VOIP software that works with major operating systems. The schools in Kazakhstan are flexible as to meeting time, and this will make up for the 11-hour time difference between most of Kazakhstan and Eastern Standard Time. The cost of this program is limited to any charges incurred through using Skype.
