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.
