What Is DVC ?
Cutting-Edge Technology For Improving Instructional Experiences
DVC provides two-way transmission of video and audio right from one's desktop computer in addition to the exchange of text, graphics, and digital movies using a whiteboard. In the picture below the whiteboard is called a "shared window." Faculty and students can collaborate in realtime on art designs, research and class projects, proposals, and writing using DVC on their desktop computers. They can see and hear each other and share work in progress simultaneously from their computer screens.
The following picture shows what a DVC session may look like on a computer screen. Apple's QuickTime Videoconferencing Kit was used for this. The two investigators for this project are shown in the windows on the left-- Dr. Penny Semrau is in the top window and Dr. Barbara Boyer appears in the bottom window.
