Welcome Patrick! I think we are reaching critical mass to start.... And I am looking forward to your ideas and contributions to create a connected alliance of villages that think on a global scale to improve local acting!
With your interest in Virtual Technology, I recommend you take a look at Wiziq's virtual classroom and authorstream's power point presentation platform. Both are web based platforms, have a bunch of features and free basic service. Here’s a public class recording you might find of interest.
