Videorecorded Classroom Instruction
Video Communication Services provides support services for NC State’s distance education programs and other remote instruction. Video support for instruction in distance education classrooms is provided without charge to NC State's colleges, departments, and faculty.
VCS supports videorecorded classroom instruction in five formats:
Real-time Distance Education
VCS staff broadcast live televised instruction from NC State’s interactive distance education classrooms to specially equipped remote sites connected to the North Carolina Research and Education Network (NCREN ). Students at the remote sites can see and hear the NC State instructor on monitors and can ask questions.
After recording a class in one of NC State’s distance education classrooms, VCS staff upload a digital file of the class to the course’s Wolfware locker. Access to the locker is restricted to students enrolled in the course. Digital files are archived for use in subsequent semesters.
After VCS records your class in one of NC State’s distance education classrooms, the NC State Distance Education office can arrange to offer your course on the Cooperating Raleigh Colleges Cable Channel. The class is broadcast approximately one week after it is recorded.
DVD copies of distance education classes offered on cable channel 18 are placed in the D.H. Hill Library’s Media Center , Erdahl-Cloyd Wing, approximately one week after the class is recorded. DVD copies of other distance education classes are distributed through the NC State Bookstore .
Although regularly scheduled distance education courses have first priority for reserving DE classrooms, NC State faculty can schedule the classrooms in unused hours to have their lectures videotaped and made available to their students online.
