received by Dr. Roland Untch
Roland Untch was awarded the Innovations Award in Videoconferencing by the TBR Distance Education Committee. The award was presented at the Seventh Annual Distance Learning Conference in Nashville, TN. Dr. Untch taught MTSU's first interactive videoconferencing course over IP. The remote site was the University of Tennessee Space Institute (UTSI) in Tullahoma.
Dr. Untch is keenly interested in developing synchronous distance education technology for use in teaching computer science. The long-term goal of this interest is to provide desktop videoconferencing instruction to computer science graduate students. Because these students often have high bandwidth network access, innovative approaches in course development and delivery are being explored to reach this population.
Dr. Roland Untch received the B.A. degree in management from Mundelein College (Loyola University Chicago), the M.S. degree in computer science from DePaul University and the Ph.D. in computer science from Clemson University. Prior to joining the faculty of MTSU in 1994, he taught at Clemson University and Purdue University Calumet.
