Using Video Conferencing in Lecture Classes
Gibbs, Bill; Larson, Erik
Innovate: Journal of Online Education, v3 n5 Jun-Jul 2007
Duquesne University's department of journalism and multimedia arts supports many of its classes with Mediasite Live, a video conferencing system that captures the output of presentation devices and streams it live to the Web, as well as recording presentations for Web streaming or recording to CD or DVD. Bill Gibbs and Erik Larson examine the implications and rewards of using video conferencing technology to support teaching and learning by discussing the implementation of the system in two courses, one offered completely online and the other using Mediasite to supplement face-to-face class time. In doing so, they assess the capabilities of the system as well as some of its limitations, and they provide an outline of practical recommendations for instructors who may use this system or similar systems in their courses. (Contains 2 figures, 5 exhibits and 1 table.)
