Video Conferencing, Education, Lectures.

I attended my first video conference lecture around 2/2.5 years ago in University; it was being delivered at 3 locations. Frankly speaking, I thought it was boring. The human interaction was highly missing. Although, it was a two way communication but I could only note down my questions and ask them at a certain point ñ I could not raise my hand as soon as I disagree with the lecturer or if I didnít understand him.

Cincinnati Museum Center in Ohio will telecast its first International video conference (distance learning) for Karachi students today.

It will be 11 PM for Ohio (22nd Nov) and 9 AM for the Karachi (23rd Nov), I believe the students have studied the course already but they will see different artifacts etc from the museum on the same topic. And ofcourse a lecture from someone who actually work with those things.

Anyway, I will be more interested to know about the quality of the conference, which includes the setup, the medium of transmission, screen, video and voice quality and more importantly how they will try to increase the human interaction between the two remote places. Good luck to them, I hope it goes well for them and is not much of a disappointment like my experience.

    i agree… interactive lecture is still the best form of teaching.
