THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: The University of Kerala took another step towards becoming a �fully wired community with the inauguration of its webcasting and videoconferencing facilities here on Tuesday.
The videoconferencing system will allow the Vice-Chancellor to interact live with academics and officials on the Karyavattom campus from his chamber at Palayam. A special room capable of seating up to 20 persons has been readied at the office of the credit and semester system at Karyavattom for this.
