Teleconferencing 

To support learning from home during school closures, and communication for libraries, several teleconferencing vendors have made services available for schools for no cost.  Provided for your research is a list of current offers. DPI does not endorse any of the vendor digital technology tools listed. There are a variety of teleconferencing tools with similar functionality available to districts to adopt.

    WebEx's free account has been upgraded to unlimited usage and up to 100 participants on calls, "during this unprecedented time."
