Lehigh U and Keystone Team in Distance Learning Training
- By Dian Schaffhauser
Lehigh University of Bethlehem, PA will be expanding its distance learning educational program using Keystone Enterprise Services' interactive satellite-training network. The service transmits graduate courses live from studio classrooms located on the Lehigh campus to Keystone client sites and elsewhere. Students can see and hear all aspects of the course presentation and communicate with the instructor by phone-bridge.
The distance education programs at Lehigh University allow students to earn a master's degree or take selected courses for credit or professional development.
"Partnering with Keystone Enterprise Services and integrating our distance programming not only meets our service needs," said Peg Portz, director of distance education at Lehigh, "[But also] we can also provide Keystone clients access to the full range of quality educational programs that we offer--a clear value-added benefit of being part of the Keystone network."
