Formal debating has always been a valued activity for students on a number of levels.
An obvious advantage of
Virtual debating is that it alleviates the need for travel by students and teachers to the opponent’s venue. Do all your debates on-campus from your own facility. Possibly the biggest advantage however is the range of opponents that your student teams will encounter in a National initiative. It allows you to break away from a normal geographic local group of competitors and have your students extended by a greater range of opponent abilities that only a national stage can offer. The students really enjoy this interaction. Also, all debates are recorded for your private access through the VC system.
