Interactive Television (iTV) & Video Conferencing
ITL schedules and coordinates the use of Video Conferencing systems for delivery of credit and non-credit distance learning courses.
Video conferencing facilities are located at the Storrs campus, as well as the regional campuses. The video conferencing systems allow ITL to connect one or more sites regionally, nationally, and internationally for scheduled classes, administrative meetings and grant related conferences.
The iTV program is comprised of ITV equipped classroom(s) on the Storrs campus and all five regional UConn Campuses (see locations). All rooms are capable of point-to-point IP connections and utilize H.239 technology, which allow instructors to send their camera image and course content (i.e. Power Point presentation) simultaneously. Two bridge devices also allows us to create multipoint conferences with up to 39 participants (mixed modes of connection are supported)
The ITL professional staff members are ready to train people, schedule, and facilitate the use of the rooms or equipment needed for distance learning and/or video conferencing.
To discuss the use of these facilities please contact Steve Fletcher at 860-486-6540 or email him at firstname.lastname@example.org.
