Instructional Technology/Distance Education/Broadcast Courses

Broadcasting CoursesEdit

The TV and radio broadcasting for educational purposes is widely used for teaching. Very often TV programs are integrated into the curriculum in addition to the existing face-to-face educational programs (for example, taped demonstration of the lectures of the famous scientists, Nobel prize laureates, etc). The feedback is organized in a form of the e-mail and asynchronous conferences. Students receive the help from the teachers, and send them back the reports about the on-going projects.

Companies are using TV broadcasting more to broadcast open forum or town hall meetings as a type of seminar course. The seminars are live and allow for Q&A session between the different locations.
