Exciting New Educational Options:
Videoconferencing Across Touro Campuses

Beginning this Fall, the Lander Colleges (LAS, LAM, LCW, TCLA, TCI and TCS) are offering courses via videoconference.

Semester Dates
JSH 529 V1 and CPP 102 V1 will begin on August 26 and end on December 31
All other courses will begin on September 10 and end on January 16, 2014.

The courses will be run in two different modalities:

  • Synchronously: Several of the courses will be run in real time, so for example, students in Touro South can enroll in a course run at LCW or in LAS.  We will use HD video equipment so that students at Touro South will be able to see the faculty member teaching the course and the instructor will see them.  Students in NY and in Miami will be able to interact with one another and with the instructor.
     
  • Asynchronously: Most courses will provide students with a video of the professor presenting the course material each week.  Some students will sit in a class in one location with the professor (synchronously), while the lecture is recorded.  Students watch the videos at different times, convenient to each student.  A student can stop the video at will; it can be "replayed" to see difficult sections again.  The student can re-watch all tapes before exams.  Students will be asked to participate in discussion boards and will be able to ask the professor questions via email.  All students will be required to participate in a recitation section at the same time, or synchronously, via web conference technology so that the instructor can review the material and answer students' questions.

Please note:

  • All students will have the same assignments and exams due at the same time.

  • Video courses are not open to first semester students.
