Outreach and Virtual Outreach
Can’t come to us? We’ll come to you through our Outreach and Virtual Outreach programmes.
Virtual Viking Outreach
Wherever you are in the world you can invite a Viking character into your classroom via a video link. Spend 45 minutes with him or her; they will tell you about their lives and your children can ask them questions. For more information or to discuss virtual outreach with other period characters, call our reservations department on 01904 615505.
Costs £35.00 per session
Wherever you are in the world you can invite a Viking into your classroom via a video link. Spend 45 minutes with him or her; they will tell you about their lives and the children in your class can question them. We use skype or ja.net to make this link.
To book a virtual outreach session, decide whether you want to use Skype or the ja.net video conferencing service (JVCS). We recommend that you check with your IT support team to find out if your local authority blocks either of these options. If you want to use Skype we need to know your Skype ID. JVCS is available for use by all ja.net primary connected organisations, schools and their guests. You can be our guest if you are not a JVCS venue. If you are a JVCS venue we need to know your venue name.
Please ring our reservations department with this information and an idea of when you would like your session to take place.
Skype can be downloaded for FREE from www.skype.com
Please note: we require at least 4 weeks’ notice when booking a virtual outreach session.
