Teleconferencing: a needs assessment and model for development of telecommunication specialists to meet the needs of satellite networks

Morgan, Lael W. January 1988 (has links)
Thesis (M.S.)--Boston University / PLEASE NOTE: Boston University Libraries did not receive an Authorization To Manage form for this thesis or dissertation. It is therefore not openly accessible, though it may be available by request. If you are the author or principal advisor of this work and would like to request open access for it, please contact us at open-help@bu.edu. Thank you. / The satellite industry has experienced amazing growth incorporate television transmissions over the last decade, as well as in use by educators and government. Further expansion seems assured as conferencing systems improve and costs decrease. But there is no training ground to guarantee a high level of professional performance in this rapidly expanding field. This study was designed to assess the needs of telecommunications networks, project growth and create a model program to meet future training requirements. Telecommunications technology is developing so fast that literature older than three years is generally out of date and current material is scanty. Thus, interview and questionnaire were the main tools of this research. In addition to a questionnaire on hiring and training practices sent to a random sample corporate users of satellite networks, the researcher relied heavily on extensive interviews with leaders in the field. Results showed an urgent need for academic training and, more challenging, a need for extensive research to weed out and/or update outmoded communications theory and provide a sound basis on which to base this training. To date the telecommunications industry (and satellite teleconferencing in particular) has been vendor driven with little thought given to exploring non-traditional approaches. There is clear indication that many traditional methods no longer serve in this new age of instantaneous, face-to-face communications with global reach. We are just beginning to see creative applications of new mediums such as the use of videoconferencing as a selling and marketing tool. And as technology continues to improve, we can expect more innovative uses that warrant careful study. This research suggests that a model program to meet academic needs should be built around an institute or "high tech center" with a strong, industry-oriented research arm. Students--undergraduate as well as master's and doctoral candidates--should be imbued with a thorough knowledge of the principles of telecommunications theory as well as a working knowledge of state-of-the-art equipment. Internships with industry and government would be vital. Publication of research and interaction with college communication departments throughout the country should be encouraged. / 2999-01-01

An investigation into the effectiveness of implementing video conferencing over IP

Meulenberg, Paul Martin Charles, pmeulenberg@swin.edu.au January 2005 (has links)
Nobody really knows with certainty what education using digital video communication technology will be like in the next ten years. The only thing that seems certain is that it will not be like the present. While no one can see into the future, we can research present realities and current rates of change as bases for projecting ahead. Video conference systems that operate over IP (Internet Protocol) are being implemented in educational organisations, businesses and homes around the globe. Video conference manufacturers inform us that the implementation of such systems and their use is relatively straightforward. This may or may not be the case. This research argues that there is significantly more to implementing video conferencing over IP than simply installing the equipment, training staff and commencing classes. This study reports on an investigation into the effectiveness of implementing digital video conferencing over IP in educational institutions. It specifically looks at this in respect of the desktop and small group user. Research in desktop videoconferencing in education exists but is not abundant, for example, Thompson (1996), Kies et al., (1997), Bogen et al., (1997), Daunt (1999), Davis and Kelly (2002), Davis et al., (2004). With the considerable progress made in IP technologies, more educational providers are moving to use desktop and small group videoconference systems to link to classes and/or students over the Internet. This is a trend that is growing rapidly world-wide. The implementation and application of IP video conferencing in education is under-researched. This study examines three separate case studies to collect the required data. It looks at the processes required to set up effective communications with students and teachers using digital media. It identifies the specific difficulties that need to be overcome, both technically as well as the human factors that are involved. It addresses these issues chiefly as related to desktop users and small groups of participants in particular. In conclusion it also focuses on the design aspects of the video conference equipment and venues used in educational environments. The aim of the research, therefore, is to understand current and future trends of implementing and using video conferencing over IP, in a technical, human and design sense. The research has practical significance for educational institutions, as it provides useful information for students, tutors, technicians and designers involved in digital video conferencing technologies now, and in the years to come.

Videoconferencing pathways to interaction

Goldberg, Lydia January 1994 (has links)
The rapid convergence of technologies of communication into a multimedia environment taking place over the last decade has created a new interest in the possibilities offered by videoconferencing systems. We are thus beginning to see the expansion of the potential for various levels of human interaction mediated by video in both business and educational domains. Through the support of the technologically mediated environment, people now have the capability to travel across time and space, meeting with other individuals, seemingly as if face-to-face. The purpose of this thesis is to explore more fully some of the issues of the new communication technologies (differences between face-to-face and mediated communication, changes to our conceptions of time and space, and problems of privacy and surveillance) and specifically how they apply to various videoconferencing scenarios as well as to a more detailed case study of a teleteaching experiment conducted recently at a French research institute.
