The Interactive Television and Videoconferencing department of the Kentucky State University, Office of Continuing and Distance provides remote, interactive visual communication using internet based, compressed video technology to facilitate the university’s delivery of credit based course instruction, faculty and staff development programs, administrative university meetings, student oriented educational programs, and both federal and state agency meetings.
Regularly scheduled classes are accessible at classroom sites in many regional high schools, technical schools, colleges, and government offices. Interactive television courses are delivered using two-way interactive videoconferencing technology operating on a comprehensive, statewide, broadband network.
Students see, hear, and talk to professors over microphones, cameras, and large television monitors connected directly to KSU campus facilities.
Students at distance sites in the KSU *Service Area interact with faculty the same way as students in the classroom on campus. Students and teachers exchange handouts and assignments and conduct open discussions with other students connected at multiple sites. Interactive television courses are particularly attractive to students who want close interaction with instructors on a weekly basis, but who are not able to travel a long distance to campus.
The Summer 2008 and Fall 2008 ITV course schedules will be coming soon. Thanks.
For information on registering for Service Area Programs, or using the KSU ITV facilities to conduct or participate in an interactive videoconference call the KSU Office of Continuing and Distance Education at (502) 597-5611 or 597-6000.
