Using videotaped lectures to practice American Sign Language (ASL) used to be a pretty tiresome process for hearing impaired and other students at the University of Rochester (NY). While the application of digital video for ASL at the University of Rochester is unique, the school certainly isn’t the only institution to improve its video technologies. A handful of other colleges and universities are starting to deliver high definition video in various formats, both online and via handheld devices. In particular, schools such as the University of Nebraska, Case Western Reserve University (OH), and the University of Michigan are blazing trails, adopting exciting video initiatives that are opening up new avenues of learning for students and teachers alike.

Never mind that the track record for such moves includes plenty of deficits and disappointments; the lure remains.
