Throughout its history the CU Boulder Division of Continuing Education has utilized innovative technologies to extend educational opportunities to students beyond the CU Boulder campus. For a second year in a row, those efforts include providing the resources needed to livestream sessions of the Conference on World Affairs (CWA) to a worldwide audience.
Last year's CWA livestream service reached over 50 countries and served as the educational component of watch parties on the CU Denver campus and at other local schools in the Boulder/Denver region.
This year's CWA week (April 9-13) will livestream 63 of the nearly 200 sessions open to the public, without charge via the CWA Livestream page that will later be made available online via the CWA YouTube archive page.
The Division of Continuing Education will cover the significant production and staffing costs of livestreaming the CWA this year to audiences in Boulder and beyond. Livestreaming services are provided by Loclyz Media Services in conjunction with the CU Boulder College of Media, Communication and Information.
"Continuing Education's sponsorship of livestream capabilities at the Conference on World Affairs fits beautifully with our mission of making CU Boulder’s faculty, courses, programs, and research available to a larger audience," said Ted Rockwell, Director of Marketing and Communications, Division of Continuing Education.
