elearning offers several services to the campus and community in addition to our interactive ETSU classes. Our mobile remote units are able to extend our conferencing abilities far beyond the geographic limits of the ETSU campus.
Currently, the Mobile Conferencing Units, or "Little Mo's" as our techs refer to them, are hard at work for the Department of Continuing Medical Education
. They stream live medical grand rounds
from auditoriums in Stanton-Gerber Hall, Votaw Auditorium, and the Johnson City Medical Center
. For over a year, they have performed reliably, being set up and broken down two to four times a week. The grand round videos are then archived to be streamed on demand or viewed through the ETSU iTunes University
Live Event Overflow Rooms
We routinely provide use of our video conferencing mobile units to allow quick, easy video solutions for the D.P. Culp Center
Auditorium. By patching one of our custom mobile remote units into the existing sound system and combining it with our professional quality cameras, we feed the live video feed to the D.P. Culp Center Ballroom across the campus internet nearly doubling the number of audience members that can view the live event! Using a simple on-screen chat, Ballroom viewer questions can be answered in real-time.
Live Classroom and Community Enrichment
Our custom built Mobile remote units make it possible for ETSU to deliver special university guests and presentations directly to the community. A kindergarten class may talk dinosaurs LIVE with an anthropologist from the Gray Fossil Site, or a university class may speak to a specialist unable to travel.
MCU Bridging Service
With live video conferencing capacity doubling in the next year, ETSU eLearning is leading the charge in high quality audio and video conferencing in the region. Our Codian Conferencing Bridge allows us to conference other standards-based h.323 units ANYWHERE! Acting as a live video conferencing switchboard, the Codian Bridge can connect endpoints from any geographic location with ease allowing a stable, multi-point conference limited only by the endpoint's available bandwidth and network infrastructure.
