FAMU technology beams lectures to Crestview campus (VIDEO)

Making the program possible

In addition to beaming teachers and students to and from Crestview, lectures are recorded and archived at the local FAMU site, allowing students to review material or see a missed lecture.

Surveys of students and faculty found overall acceptance of the system, FAMU's senior computer support specialist Jason Mobley said.

"The technology doesn't get in the way of the professor," Mobley said. "All he has to do is turn on his microphone and teach."

Dr. Margareth Larose-Pierre, the Crestview campus’ associate dean, said the technology makes the Crestview pharmacy program possible, as budget restrictions bar hiring additional faculty to staff the satellite campus.

"Without the technology, we wouldn't be able to offer the program," Larose-Pierre said.
