Iowa Lakes Community College will introduce new video classrooms to students when they return for the second summer semester next week. The rooms -- two on each of Iowa Lakes' five campuses -- feature 80-inch video screens and "always on" microphones which provide seamless communications with several locations at one time. The new system will allow the college to "split" the channels and offer a wider variety of classes for those wishing to pursue an evening AA degree. The video classroom system (below) featured small TVs with hand-operated microphones for each student and limited curriculum offerings. (Photos by Randy M. Cauthron)
