NSF Sponsored Teaching Program: Long Distance Learning Overview

LONG DISTANCE LEARNING - Learning through fiber optics

BOB GOLDBERG'S TEACHING PROGRAM GOES COUNTRY-WIDE
Bob Goldberg's teaching program is currently taught simultaneously to students at UCLA, and via Long Distance Learning at UC Davis and Tuskegee University. The HC70A lectures and class room discussions are carried out over a dedicated fiber optics cable using a state-of-the art classroom that allows simultaneous video and audio interactions between Bob Goldberg and his students in real-time between the classroom in UCLA and miles away at UC Davis and Tuskegee University. During the quarter, the UC Davis and Tuskegee students visited UCLA and joined Bob Goldberg's class for experiments and discussions.UCLA, UC Davis, and Tuskegee University students interacted with each other, working in groups and participating in joint discussions and all-class projects.

BOB GOLDBERG'S TEACHING PROGRAM GOES INTERNATIONAL - An Ocean Apart, But Sharing a Classroom

Bob Goldberg's teaching program is taught simultaneously to students at both UCLA and Kyoto University in Japan as part of a unique Trans-Pacific International Long-Distance Educational Program (TIDE). HC70A lectures and discussions were carried out in real time over a dedicated fiber optics cable using a state-of-the art classroom that allows simultaneous video and audio interactions between Bob Goldberg and his students on both sides of the Pacific Ocean - merging different cultures and universities into one large international classroom. In addition, students from each university got the oppertunity to "switch sides" for a week during the quarter - UCLA students went to Kyoto and participate from Japan and Kyoto University students visit UCLA and participate "live," providing for a novel cultural and educational experience.

The HC70AL Gene Discovery Lab is also part of Bob Goldberg's NSF-sponsored long-distance learning program. Kyoto University students that have completed HC70A came to visit UCLA for a quarter and team up with UCLA students in the laboratory using functional genomics to uncover genes required to make a seed.

UCLA and Kyoto students interact with each other and their professor in state-of-the-art classrooms that use the high speed links to permit instant audio and video exchanges.
