The Center for Online and Distance Learning provides select services to the general public.
The Center can assist you with your video conferencing needs. We have three rooms that are equipped for site-to-site IP based videoconferencing almost anywhere in the world. They are ideal for providing distance classroom instruction, performing interviews, and group training in multiple locations.
The Center administers the Mediasite classroom capture system. Mediasite is lecture capture technology developed by Sonic Foundry that records video and audio of the instructor and syncs it with the integrated software used in the class. The presentation is archived and available to watch at any time streamed from a secure server. This service allows students to take classes from a distance or allows the instructor to pre-record a lecture that they know they will miss and not have to make up any class time.
Mediasite also allows live-streaming of video and is used for broadcasting lectures and events like Commencement and the George T. Hunter Lecture Series.
Another valuable teaching resource that is available through the Center for Online and Distance Learning is the Adobe Connect conferencing tool. This web conferencing software allows for synchronous online meetings and classes. Give us a call to find out more.
