The guide showed exhibits from different areas of the museum via the video conferencing equipment. The students were able to ask questions and participate in live discussions about the artifacts they saw. This experience not only gave the students a unique view of the Football Hall of Fame, but also gave them a glimpse of what is possible through technology.
The virtual field trip was sponsored by ACCESS, the online course delivery department of the Alabama State Department of Education. Coach Holladay, Athletic Director Jimmie Alexander and Barry Barnett of ACCESS were all on hand to organize and facilitate the experience.
