Wisconsin's Nicolet College has adopted telepresence at three of its campuses in an effort to better support distance learning students.

Funded through a $415,000 grant from the United States Department of Labor's Employment and Training Administration, the technology has been installed at the school's Rhinelander, Minocqua and Tomahawk campuses. At Rhinelander, the telepresence classroom "is outfitted with five displays, including three 65-inch, high-definition screens that sit side-by-side," according to a news release. "In front of the displays is a specially-designed table for students and instructor. Each site has an advanced camera system along with theater-quality audio equipment."

Users appearing on the screens are presented at near life size and at eye level.
