Investigating webcasting as an intervention technique for International MSc. Students

    Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

    Abstract

    This study explored the feasibility of using webcasting as a possible intervention technique to deal with the late arrival of International students who are unable to attend University on day one of their postgraduate programmes.To put this lateness into context the planning department of the University was contacted and data was provided which allowed this to be quantified in terms of number of days late. Information was collected from a number of companies producing webcasting solutions and this report briefly describes their usage in a small scale pilot run. After the trial run survey data was collected from student attendees to gather their views with regard to the viability of using such products whilst being back home.
