Course syllabus for MCOM 570 Media Workshop: Videoconferencing

Course description: This workshop in videoconferencing is designed around the development of a satellite distributed videoconference involving locations at GSU and other places, perhaps far removed from GSU. The ideas for these projects may be from clients asking the University for assistance or from the Workshop participants themselves. Last year's videoconference project Dealing with School Violence: An Agenda for Action was seen in 30 locations across the country. The class works with a client who assists the project budgetarily and in making content and promotional assistance.

The Videoconference Team involves students working in production, marketing and content/research. The major project will be a satellite-distributed videoconference involving audiences who require quick access to essential information delivered on a point-to-multi-point basis. Workshop participants will form the videoconference team often created for such a project or event. The instructor will act as the Executive Producer and assist coordination of the project, which will be the prime responsibility of the Workshop.

In addition to actual project creation, development and execution, selected issues and resources related to videoconferencing, including various applications and networks, will be covered as time allows.
