The University of Thessaly supports videoconference and tele-education over IP, videoconference, Video on Demand, and live transmission of TV programs and local radio station program through Internet. All are provided through the university's Network Management Centre, in cooperation with GUNET.

The Network Centre of the University has already set up a fully-equipped videoconference room in Trikala, for the Department of Physical Training Science. The video teleconference room has been successfully used for synchronous distance education sessions in physical training science issues for the students and for similar postgraduate courses attendance.
