Skype or Google Chat seem like nice, simple solutions. Given the length of the program during the day, iPads might be good to use l, if available, because of the battery life.

> Our institution has a student with quadriplegia applying to a program that is mostly online, but has a one week residency program each semester. The student can be in his chair for a maximum of 3 hours a day due to pain management and is otherwise in his bed. The residency program starts at 9 in the AM and goes into the evening for a week.


> I was thinking he could be Skyped into the programming daily so he can be present live. Currently the program coordinator is thinking of recording the days so the student can watch them after. I told the coordinator that I was concerned with the recordings as the student wouldn’t be able to see them live thus making the experience quite different than that of his peers. The coordinator seems open to working on a solution and I told him I’d ask here for ideas!
