Video Conferencing

Interactive Television – Interactive Television (ITV) is a class delivery method that allows faculty to teach across two or more distant teaching locations. Through ITV, students from the Victoria and Katy locations can interact with each other and their instructor in real time.

For scheduled academic ITV classes, IT will set up the rooms ahead of time to ensure ample time for troubleshooting and to make sure classes are started on time. These rooms can be utilized for large meetings, subject to room availability. Meetings hosted out of the following rooms will be set up by IT.
