DISTANCE EDUCATION CLASSROOM
The E-Learning Classroom is located within the LRC and is used by the College of Education’s departments to provide on-campus courses to off-campus students. Utilizing RealMedia Technology, classes can be streamed over the internet to distance students who wish to watch class live, or they can view archived classes stored on a server at their convenience.
The E-Learning Classroom provides a variety of equipment that assists with a course. Using a touch-screen, sources can be chosen and displayed using the rooms two projectors. Sources include a desktop computer, a laptop, a document camera and a VCR/DVD combo player. Taking advantage of technology behind the scenes, presenters can be chroma keyed in front of sources such as a weatherman would do on TV. We have a variety of wireless microphones for presenters as well as tabletop microphones for students to use if questions or discussions occur.
By using state-of-the-art equipment and keeping up with technology trends we hope to better serve the distance students by providing the best “virtual classroom” possible.
