SEMESTER LONG VIDEOCONFERENCE COURSES

UW-Madison collaborates with other universities to provide videoconference courses through the Big Ten Academic Alliance.

Van Hise 254, 290, and 294 use dedicated advanced videoconference hardware to share high-definition audio and video between peer institutions. Coordination for semester-long videoconference courses requires consultation, technology vetting, and instructor training prior to the start of the semester.
