BearNet allows a live classroom-to-classroom audio-video connection. Students are able to see and speak with students and instructors in BearNet interactive classrooms at other sites. The interactive classroom is designed to foster discussion and interaction, while limiting intrusion by technology. These classrooms are operational in Springfield, Joplin, Lebanon, Mountain Grove, Neosho, Nevada, and West Plains. Classrooms are being developed in other areas throughout southwest Missouri as well.

Faculty interested in utilizing BearNet rooms and technology should contact Melissa Warren at 417-836-3091 for more information.

Support information is available for students and faculty.
