ABSTRACT
The objective of this article is to discuss how to facilitate the hands-on practice in a lab intensive interactive TV classroom. An interactive TV allows students from multiple teaching sites to interact with the instructor in real time. Although interactive TV is an effective teaching platform for lectures, it may not be the ideal teaching platform for lab intensive courses, especially for teaching computer technology content. In an interactive TV classroom, the instructor is not able to help students solve the problems in front of the students' computers. This article suggests an online computer lab platform designed for the interactive TV classroom. Different from the traditional interactive TV teaching, the proposed solution allows the instructor to display a student's computer screen on TV and discuss with the students about a problem in real time. The students in the same interactive TV classroom can also benefit from the problem solving process. After comparing the traditional interactive TV teaching method and the proposed method, this article presents strategies to take advantage of online computer labs in teaching lab intensive courses through an interactive TV. By using a case study, this article illustrates the application of these strategies in teaching a network management course in an interactive TV classroom.
