WSU Videoconferencing:  Current State and Recommendations

Please note that while 358 faculty taught a distance course using WSU videoconference technology between fall 2016 and spring 2018, only 59 responded to a survey asking for input (see page 4, highlighted text).  It is our hope that faculty will use the comment tool to provide input on this study as it will be used to help shape resource allocation.
