EDU 507 Utilizing Distance Education Systems to Enhance Classroom Instruction is designed to be a methods class for distance education, with a specific focus on utilizing the Tandberg Video System. This course will provide hands-on opportunities for participants to utilize this technology as both a receive and a send participant. In order to ensure authenticity, this course will be delivered to remote participants via the Tandberg System. The primary focus of the course will center on live, interactive videoconferencing as a mechanism for quality, research-based instruction; however, ancillary asynchronous tools will be leveraged to create a blended distance education environment. Participants will research the effectiveness of videoconferencing as a classroom instructional media, and they will apply their research findings and the learning in this course to modifying a current face-to-face course they teach for delivery via videoconferencing; they will also apply the results of their research and their learning to incorporating videoconferencing to enhance and expand student learning in another of their face-to-face courses.
As a result of this course, participants will:
1. Become familiar with the Tandberg Video System and develop comfort in utilizing it for classroom instruction;
2. Learn about additional resources that can bring unique learning experiences to their students via the Tandberg video technology;
3. Learn how to transform a course they are already teaching into a course that can be presented via the Tandberg System;
4. Develop an understanding of how to utilize the Tandberg video system to enhance a face-to-face course they currently teach; and
5. Research sources of materials available through a variety of media appropriate for incorporating into courses via video.
