Using polycom to reduce costs for statewide training

Jane Morse


The Integrated Pest Management Statewide Training has been conducted for several years as a traveling road show. Speakers came from long distances and would travel to three separate locations in the state to provide training. This was very expensive and would take the travelers away from their home base for an approximately one-week time period. In an effort to reduce costs and avoid travel expenses as well as keep speakers at their home base we decided to try polycom as a means to provide the same type of training without the travel. Several conference calls were also used in the past to coordinate this event and the thought was to use email, web tools, and polycom to decrease this cost as well.
