During the course of Live from the Hubble Space Telescope, various NASA experts were available for live interactions with students. These scheduled events took place in two ways: CU-SeeMe and WebChat.
Each event was scheduled for two one-hour blocks in a given day to provide schools with flexibility.

April 23, 1996
April 11 Chris Wilkinson from the Goddard Space Flight Center;
April 17 Alex Storrs and Tony Roman from Space Telescope Science Institute;
March 29 A special session was available from the exhibit floor of the NSTA convention. This convention brought together 15,000 science teachers for a festival of learning. Many Passport to Knowledge organizers and teachers were attending, and those who could not attend in person were able to virtually join us.
Tips for CU-SeeMe success are available.
WebChatWebChat is a technology in which you type brief thoughts while others are doing the same thing. Every Tuesday from 3-4pm Pacific (6-7 Eastern) there was a regularly scheduled WebChat with Live from the Hubble Space Telescope organizers and others who drop in. These sessions provided a chance to get familiar with the system before a scheduled conference with a NASA expert.
A schedule for the WebChat sessions with NASA experts was:
