Harvard Business School Adopts Live Streaming For Lessons

Roshan Dwivedi Published on : 25 August 2015

 

When Harvard Business School launched the online education program HBX last year, the idea was to reach undergraduates who might want a basic grounding in business principles by learning fundamentals like financial accounting, business analytics, and economics.

But there was a catch.

Initially, the courses weren’t live, meaning they lacked a core component of the school’s approach to education: students debating the pros and cons of a detailed case study.

Now, HBX has developed a live streaming service, called HBX Live, designed to replicate the experience of a classroom.

Located at the public television station WGBH in Boston, the business school’s studio is laced with multiple video cameras, equipped with flat-screen monitors that can act like digital whiteboards, and dominated by 10-foot-tall wall of video screens capable of displaying the faces of 60 students.

Along the bottom, a “ticker” displays chat messages the students type during the lesson.
