Instructional Technology/Distance Education/Broadcast Courses
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.
