FHSU, Internet TV help governor make a date in Dodge City

Fog prevented Gov. Kathleen Sebelius from flying down to the second stop of a two-day, seven-city trip, but Internet protocol TV at her first stop, Fort Hays State University, still allowed more than 80 people in Dodge City to hear her message and ask their questions.

After winding up the presentation and question-answer session in FHSU's Memorial Union, which was also broadcast to almost 70 people at six different locations -- Pratt, Colby, Great Bend, Liberal, Dodge City and Garden City -- Sebelius was due to fly to Dodge City for a session at Dodge City High School.

However, fog in southwest Kansas ruled out flying there, so she stayed in Stouffer Lounge in Memorial Union while arrangements were made for an IPTV broadcast to Dodge City Community College. The intended audience was redirected to three rooms at DCCC, where they were able to hear the governor's presentation and ask questions.

FHSU's Dennis King, director of the university's Center for Teaching Excellence and Learning Technology, said that about 85 people attended. CTELT was responsible for making the IPTV broadcasts possible.
