  • Web Conferencing- Elluminate -
    • A real-time virtual classroom environment designed for distance education and collaboration in academic institutions and corporate training.
  • Streaming Video
    A one-way video transmission over the Internet – widely used to deliver video-on-demand or a video broadcast. Streaming video is played within a few seconds of requesting it, and the data is not stored permanently in the user’s computer.
  • Podcasting
    A podcast is a series of digital-media files which are distributed over the Internet using syndication feeds for playback on portable media players and computers.
  • TIE Program Outcomes
    Students and faculty in classes utilizing the instructional technologies of the TIE projects were surveyed to assess the effectiveness of the introduced technology
  • Podcasting
    Would you like future online classes to use podcasting?
  • Future Interest in Streaming Video
    The availability of streaming media is the best thing the university could have done for the outreach students. I would like to see more classes offer this…
    It was very nice to be able to use streaming videos, especially since college expenses add up quick! I recommend that you continue this service so as to not deter potential future students. Thanks!
     More classes on streaming video would be awesome!!
     It's a good and even necessary service. Thanks!
  • In the future, I will prefer classes where web conferencing is included.
  • The use of streaming video in this course enhanced my learning

  • Connecting with Outreach Students
    A challenge in distance learning is to create a connected learning community. How did podcasting and web conferencing enhance the connection between faculty and students?
  • Podcasts allowed me to feel more connected with the instructor
  • I felt socially connected with my instructor through web conferencing.

    “Tech Toy”
    Provision of hardware and software
