Distance learning technology is playing an increasingly important role in higher education. With the demand for online courses and costs for travel and other resources growing, universities are discussing ways in which to enhance their distance and online offerings. The Center for Languages, Literatures and Cultures (CLLC) has taken an active role in the area of distance learning in foreign languages through the facilities of the World Media and Culture Center and through the expertise of our technology staff.
The CLLC works with faculty and departments wishing to offer distance learning courses and provides assistant in the planning, implementation, and evaluation of these courses or programs. The CLLC technology staff can help develop short-term or longer-term videoconferencing sessions, arrange for webinar software for classes or meetings using Adobe Connect, and train faculty and GTAs in the use of these and other technologies. For more information please contact CLLC director Glenn Martinez.
