What is Distance Learning Technology?
• Broadcasts accomplished through the use of a steerable satellite dish system at each location. This
dish is capable of receiving broadcasts and is similar to the dish used by cablevision companies to obtain programming before sending the signal down the cable to your home.

• Network is also used to disseminate public service information and conduct departmental business, and communicate to the public health workforce during disasters.

Why Distance Learning?
