Experience and Innovation
Since 1989, eLearning has been providing live classes to
remote campus facilities. In the years since, we have offered
our video conferencing facilities and services to the ETSU campus
and community to host live events and private meetings hosted in
our distance education classrooms.
In 2008, we developed a remote conferencing unit that allows us to
escape the confines of our classrooms and provide effective,
professional quality video conferencing to not only the entire
campus, but to the entire community, and beyond! These conferencing
units use the same high quality, h.323 standards-based point to
point video conferencing equipment that we use in our classrooms in
a small, portable package that can be loaded into a car and
delivered anywhere there is adequate bandwidth.
The first use of our mobile conferencing unit was in October of
2007 to deliver a live stream discussion of the Presidential debate
between John McCain and Barack Obama from an ETSU campus auditorium
to auditoriums across Tennessee. Students in each location
had a moment to express their views to a state-wide audience.
With 20 years of video conference and distance education
experience, Elearning is committed to innovating new uses for
streaming technology and mobile conferencing making ETSU a leader
in online education.
