The National Park Service has a mission to provide distance learning in some form or other from all of its locations. Not all of them choose to use videoconferencing as a way to carry out this objective, but those who do have some incredible programs. One of the most notable is from the Brown vs Board of Education National Historic Site. This site offers a scheduled program with notable figures whose family members were involved in this famous civil rights case. More information on this program can be found at the Brown vs Board of Education wiki, where they have teachers resources and videos. They are also able to customize programs to fit any teacher’s curriculum. Check out the Brown vs Board of Education website for more information on this content provider.
Some of the other videoconferences offered by the National Park Service include The Grand Canyon, The Homestead National Monument, Badlands National Park, and the Minuteman Missile National Historic Site.
All of these programs can be found at Vcontentproviders.org
