Polycom for Polyglots in Saint Petersburg

Stéphane Giroux Teacher, Vanier College

Amazingly, the technology was no problem! Vanier’s boardroom has a hardware installation using Polycom software which was also being used by the school in Russia. Stéphane literally walked into the boardroom where there’s a camera hard-wired, pushed a button and had perfect communication with his partner in Russia's second city.
