Satelliter Programming and Videoconferencing
At CCE Lewis County Overview
Satellite programming capabilities have been available at Cornell Cooperative Extension- Lewis County since July 1993. There are several benefits to our local community in providing this type of programming. Most importantly, it allows us to offer up-to-date information in areas outside our staffs expertise. Satellite programs also provide information about the most current research and trends.
Many of the programs we downlink are teleconferences- defined as live television broadcasts featuring case studies, discussion forums and nationally recognized experts. The program is delivered direct via satellite to a licensed site. A teleconference is interactive- giving participants access via phone, fax, or email to the speakers featured. County has down linked programs in the areas of Agriculture, Business, Education, Environment, Family, Finance, Government, Health and Nutrition, and Bioterrorism issues.
