Rutgers teleconference classroom

Graduate students from Rutgers Professional Science Master’s Program and The Ohio State University shared a course this summer using the new video-enhanced learning facilities in Tillet Hall.  The course, on Intellectual Property Strategy, has been offered by Rutgers for the past 6 years. There were 54 students total, eight from OSU's Fisher College of Business, and 46 from Rutgers. The new classroom in Tillet Hall has voice activated microphones and immersive cameras so that the students and lecturers could feel connected. In addition to the telepresence classroom, there were 18 remote students who connected through a web conferencing system. The course covered the fundamentals of intellectual property, evaluating patent portfolios, and technology transfer and included many guest lectures from experts in the field. The lectures alternated between New Jersey and Rutgers.
