In an era of budget reductions and cost-cutting, cost and efficiency are primary considerations for institutions of higher learning. And yet, the California State University, Fullerton School of Nursing has been able to continue to provide high quality support services to students while reducing the time required for these functions.   The School of Nursing uses video streaming and lecture capture not only for course instruction and distance education, but also for a slew of other campus functions: to develop and capture recruitment sessions for new student cohorts, to advise currently enrolled students, for student and faculty orientation, faculty interviews, guest speakers, and to record brief, targeted modules to orient distance and campus students to the technology used in the program…and the list goes on.   Join Marsha Orr as she reveals the secret to their multi-faceted success.
