SeaTrek.TV lessons are one-to-one classroom experiences where students can ask their questions in real time. They are two-way, interactive video connections between your school or organization and our laboratory in Florida using internet technology. They are available at flexible times. We can see and hear your learners and they can see and hear us.
There are many ways to connect with us for interactive video lessons. Some schools and organizations use dedicated video systems from Polycom, Cisco and LifeSize. These hardware systems are often called H.323 codecs after the communication standard they used to "talk" to each other. There are also numerous software-based video solutions available like Zoom, Skype, Google Hangouts and much more. We are as flexible as possible in making your connection request. If you have any questions about how to receive a SeaTrek.TV lesson, please contact us.
SeaTrek.TV lessons are available in 25 and 50 minute lengths for grades K-12+. Check our LESSON GUIDE for a full catalog of our lessons.
