In an era of budget reductions and cost-cutting, cost and efficiency are primary considerations for institutions of higher learning, but the California State University, Fullerton School of Nursing has been able to continue to provide high quality support services to students while reducing the time required for these functions.

The School of Nursing uses video streaming and lecture capture not only for course instruction and distance education, but also for a slew of other campus functions. Marsha Orr, distance education faculty liaison, will discuss:

  • Why video-based instruction and video distribution is key to not only successful course instruction, but also multiple other training needs on campus
  • How the department is leveraging lecture capture for LMS training boot camp as they transition to Moodle®
  • Tips for saving time in recruitment, advising and orientation through webcasting
  • Ways to better standardize information provided to students, which in turn enhance students' perceptions of the quality of support they receive
