DISTANCE LEARNING WITH HIGH-DEFINITION LOW LATENCY VIDEO AND MULTI-MEDIA INFRASTRUCTURE

Chirag Dekate, Thomas Sterling, Daniel Eiland, Ravi Paruchuri

Abstract

Although distance learning has a history that spans many decades, the full opportunity that is implicit in its exploitation has not been fully realized due to combination of factors including disparate experience between it and its classroom counterpart. However current and emerging technologies are helping overcome this barrier by providing significantly better interaction among the individual participants, thereby opening new avenues for knowledge dissemination. LSU in collaboration with five other institutions has developed effective methods that greatly extend the educational opportunities through combination of advanced technologies and educational methodologies. LSU and its partners have tested these technologies in real-time over the last two years. While further improvements are needed, this activity represents the current state of the art in technologies utilized and the quality of content and experience delivered. The distance learning initiative undertaken by LSU and its partners is driven by a vision for education, which aims to deliver expert & top-quality educational content to locations irrespective of their economic or technological limitations.
