Confab to put focus on online education

Teaching methods evaluated with interactive learning sessions

Educators and software wizards plan to converge on UCLA’s school of theater, film and TV today as part of an effort to develop an online interactive education system.

Attendees to the three-day conference will be working on new teaching methods that would allow film and TV students around the world to work together on projects from conception through post-production using their computers.

The “interactive distance learning” sessions are being put together by a consortium of film and TV schools. Anyone interested in the conference may check in via the Web at http://hypermedia.ucla.edu/cilect.

“This event will offer a glimpse at the future of film schools,” UCLA spokeswoman Teri Bond Michael said. “Soon you may just click on to a production class, produce your film online and never set foot on the same continent as your classmates.”

Robert Rosen, dean of the school of theater, film and television, said the concept of long-distance learning “is an exciting and important area where film and television production, new technology and educational objectives converge.” He predicted that the practice will be “increasingly important in years to come.”

Panelists include reps from the American Film Institute, the U.K.’s National Film and Television School, Ohio and Stanford universities, UCLA Extension and the UCLA school of engineering and applied sciences.
