Audioconferencing: A Case Study from Spruce Budworm Technology Transfer
Abstract:The cost of conducting business and educational meetings has increased steadily over the past few years. One alternative to the traditional face-to-face (FTF) meeting is teleconferencing. Audioconferencing, the simplest form of teleconferencing, involves verbal communication with optional telewriting or telecopying. The potential cost savings of audioconferencing can be substantial. In the Spruce Budworm Technology Transfer Program for the Lake States, an audioconference was about half as expensive as an FTF meeting. Audioconferencing is also more convenient and flexible than FTF meetings. However, it is not appropriate for all meetings. Audioconferencing reduces the cost and increases the convenience of group meetings; it does not reduce the complexity of group communication. North. J. Appl. For. 3:52-55, September, 1984
