Bonjour from Montreal and happy FOURTH of JULY

I want to install a conferencing system that will carry vido as well as
audio. Being completely green in this field, I dare ask a few questions
hoping to obtain a prompt answer.

This conferencing system would be used with a live class of 3-5 people in
the main location where the course would be given, and remotely attended in
a number (2-3) of remote locations by using a videoconferencing system.

People attending the remote classes would be permitted to ask questions and
attendees of all remote classes should be able to hear both the question
and the answer as well as seeing the teahcer and the other classes.

>From what I gather, CU-SeeMe should be a good tool to use.

Q. 1
Where, in a book or on the net, can I obtain good instructions without
having to enroll in PictureTel's Certified Videoconferencing Engineer (CVE)
Program?
http://www.picturetel.com/esd/cve.htm

Q.2
To install a REFLECTOR, do I need to have a separate IP address. Currently
I am using a virtual server with my own sub-domain name and address.

Q.3
What knowledge or training is necessary to be able to manage a
videoconference where most of the attendees are not much computer litterate?
Everything has to be simple.

Q.4
Does CU-SeeMe exist in a French version?

Q.5
Can you give me some guidelines concerning the necessary microphones and
cameras?

Your help will be much appreciated.

Many thanks,

Andre Fleurant
