Interactive Video Courses
Each semester certain courses (usually General Education courses) are offered over the interactive television classrooms in Tama Hall 127 and 129. These are broadcast to most of Region VII high schools, and include the following centers:
Instructing from each center requires you to schedule with the distance learning coordinator or the center manager.
These systems connect students to their instructors from their high school or one of Hawkeye's centers. Hawkeye offers high school advanced placement courses for high schools whose teachers can't provide them. Hawkeye's centers offer students the opportunity to take courses without the hassle and time of traveling to Main Campus.
Teaching a Live Interactive Course
Hawkeye distance-learning courses offer an interactive education through the Educational Broadcast System (EBS) and Iowa Communication Network (ICN).
Educational Broadcast Systems (EBS)
The Educational Broadcast Systems (EBS) is a wireless video conferencing system that connects Hawkeye's centers with some high schools within Region VII.
Iowa Communication Network (ICN)
The Iowa Communication Network (ICN) is a fiber optic system that connects with Hawkeye's centers, as well as more than 800 sites across Iowa. Most high schools, libraries, as well as local, state, and federal governments use this system. For more information, visit the Iowa Communications Network or the Iowa Distance Learning Database.
Training is required to teach in a live interactive video classroom. Contact the distance learning coordinator to schedule a 90-minute training session.
