Video Conferencing Model

As part of a comprehensive distance education program, and in service to the greater New York State Capital Region, accredited master's level courses are offered via video conferencing. This capability links the community of learners in the Capital Region and Northeastern's main campus in Rochester, N.Y. through live video feed, providing a real-time, interactive classroom.

The PolyCom interactive video distance learningtechnology allows for multidirectional streaming so professors can teach from either the Rochester or Capital Region location. They can engage students through lecture and multimedia resources at both sites and students can interact with each other as well. This classroom format is integrated with on-site small group interactions and periodic chapel services to enhance community and provide instruction in spiritual formation-a distinctive of the NES education. A scheduled rotation of seminary staffing at the Capital Region site, steady communication among members of the seminary community, and cohort rapport provides the high-touch quality that is significant to theological education.
