Welcome to the Department’s Virtual Conference Centre.
The Virtual Conference Centre offers free web conference sessions for meeting, learning and collaborating online. This facility is available for use by Victorian educators in government, catholic and independent schools, and Departmental staff in regional and central offices.
Web conferencing is a powerful way to connect, communicate and collaborate with others in real-time, without leaving your desk. It enables you to undertake professional learning and develop networks with your colleagues, no matter where they are.
Students can benefit from web conferencing too. Teachers can facilitate lessons online, access subject experts or join with other schools to work collaboratively on projects in an exciting, online environment.
