Dr. Benjamin Lesjak, EMUNI, Slovenia; who is a member of the HANDSON consortium, recently delivered a presentation at ARNES 2014 Conference – Transferring Knowledge http://eng.sirikt.si/events/arnes-2014-conference/. Benjamin presented his experiences of using videoconferencing service as  an ICT tool, integrated into his regular teaching.  This included collaborative processes, especially distance teaching, remote meetings, guest lectures, distance student thesis review and examination, and to extend  the target audiences to those who cannot attend lectures in person.
