|North Dakota IVN will present innovative uses of technology|
The North Dakota Interactive Video Network (IVN) is offering a showcase of innovative uses of videoconferencing from 11:55 a.m. to 12:50 p.m. Friday, Feb. 12, via IVN in Gamble Hall, Room 120.
When it began 20 years ago, IVN was a rigid technology that was used primarily for classes and meetings amongst the state’s 11 campuses. Today, videoconference technology is much more flexible and pervasive across the country and around the world. As a result, some within the North Dakota University System have found unique ways to use the technology to their advantage.
This showcase presentation will highlight those uses:
• How a student group at NDSU shared knowledge of a new service by connecting with a student group in Wisconsin.
• How North Dakota Association of Student Financial Aid Administrators uses IVN to provide college financial aid information for parents and prospective students to local K-12 schools.
• How UND goes international with class connections.
• How NDSU Extension reaches the rural family with a farm management course known as Annie’s Project.
Bring your lunch and come gain new insights on how you might use this technology. Learn how other departments can use the technology to better serve your campus and cut travel costs. Faculty, staff, student group leaders and department heads are encouraged to attend. IVN is part of the Advanced Learning Technologies of the North Dakota University System.
