Columbia College students learn nursing 75 miles away
Video conferencing allows local students to attend nursing classes with lecturers at the main campus in Columbia.
As the complexity of technology increases so does the way society uses it. Columbia College began utilizing technology in an unique way in recent years that has allowed students on the main campus and the Lake of the Ozark campus receive a comparable education.
"In-class lectures in the nursing program utilize interactive audio/visual conferencing. This lecture method allows nursing students to participate in classes at the same time as their nursing counterparts at other campuses. The primary instructor, a full-time nurse faculty member with expertise in the course content, telecasts the lecture," said Columbia College officials. "The receiving site has a full-time faculty member or clinical instructor monitoring and facilitating classroom activities, advising students, grading examinations and homework, and handling classroom situations or questions."
