Interactive Media Instruction: Webcasting College Radio and Television Programs.
Reppert, James E.
Recent innovations involving audio and video on the Internet allow for more creativity and flexibility in the broadcast education classroom. Despite the fact that Southern Arkansas University (SAU) has a modest budget allocated for its broadcast journalism program, significant interactive changes have taken place. At the outset of the fall 1999 semester, with the help of those majors possessing extensive computer backgrounds, separate Internet sites were created for audio and video Webcasts of student-produced radio and television programs. The requisite formatting and editing skills involving Webcast technology were learned by teacher and students together--students now have easy access to view, listen, and critique their assignments, and recruiting efforts are assisted, as high school seniors or prospective transfers can witness what the SAU broadcast journalism degree program has to offer. Incoming students have indicated that the Webcasts were indeed a factor in deciding to attend SAU. (Copies of radio and television program Internet sites and sample scripts from various spring 2000 editions of "SAU Magazine," and a student-produced radio program comprise the majority of this document.)
