The Project

The University of Houston at Sugar Land (UHSL) was using Instructional Television, or ITV, as the primary video model to deliver classes remotely. They also used legacy video conferencing equipment and were experienced many challenges with it. Not only was it very expensive, but it was also difficult to operate and required a staff member trained specifically in telecommunications to initiate and receive calls and support the technology. With advancements in the campus-wide networks and video conferencing technology,
John McKee, the Technical Services Manager, and his team were challenged to plan, organize
and implement a new video resource project
for UHSL.
