North Dakota Interactive Video Network: A Practical Guide to Teleconferencing and Distance Education.
Tykwinski, Joseph R.; Poulin, Russell C.
North Dakota is one of the first states to create a statewide system--the Interactive Video Network (IVN)--that allows multiple video conferencing between two or more sites. In 1990-91, IVN connected 10 campuses and the State Capitol. IVN's purpose is to deliver quality postsecondary programs to students who would not otherwise have access to these services; improve the quality of offerings on each campus; and expand services with elementary, secondary and vocational education, state agencies, the private sector, and other states. This faculty handbook for using IVN is divided into six chapters: (1) Introduction to the North Dakota Interactive Video Network; (2) Classroom Layout and Equipment; (3) Personnel, Management, and Scheduling for IVN; (4) Adapting a Classroom Presentation Style to Interactive Video; (5) Overcoming the "Distance" in Distance Education and Maintaining an Appropriate Level of Interaction; and (6) Preparing and Presenting Visual Aids. It is noted that expansion of the system to serve state agencies, the public, and elementary and secondary schools is planned. A five-item bibliography and a glossary of terms are included. (ALF)
