OSTN Student Television Showcase - Saturday July 21
On Saturday evening, OSTN features the very best of its student television programming and airs favorite episodes of Brown University's Elected, USC's Birnkrant 616, Ball State University's Something Else TV (SETV), and the University of Akron's Akron After Hours.
In North America, OSTN uses Internet2's advanced network to distribute programming to members.
CENIC created the CalREN network to enable precisely this sort of active, collaborative learning environment, and we're delighted that students at our member institutions will be able to take advantage of what OSTN has to offer.
OSTN CableTV includes educational channels such as University of California Television (UCTV).
This partnership allows California educators to leverage their investments in CENIC's CalREN network to deliver quality educational and foreign language multimedia content, and that promises tremendous opportunities for learning," said Prashant Chopra, OSTN Chief Executive Officer.
Two CENIC members, San Francisco State and the University of Southern California, provide student-produced content to OSTN.
