UTSA to offer live Webcast of commencement

(May 10, 2006)--A Greenville grandma can watch her grandson walk across the stage at UTSA commencement this week from the comfort of her own home. A hospitalized husband can watch his wife, while a dad in Denver dances with joy as he watches his daughter's long awaited graduation -- all with the click of a mouse.

For the first time ever, UTSA commencement ceremonies will be broadcast live. From South San Antonio to South America to South Africa, friends and family members can visit the UTSA Commencement Web site to join in the celebration.

UTSA will be in good company as both UT Austin and UT Dallas provide Webcasts of their ceremonies. Computers need RealPlayer to view the ceremonies -- download the free version from the RealPlayer site.

According to Milo Silva, assistant director of planning and engineering in Distance Learning, UTSA will use a portable streaming computer. Ceremonies will be recorded and may be offered on-demand at a later date. Before that can happen, however, the server used by UTSA for WebCT will have to be purged of spring classes to free up space.
