Stelzer, an assistant professor in the Kinesiology and Physical Education Department, created the international distance learning course at VSU to expose students in his Health and Wellness class to culturally diverse health care approaches. Internet-based conferencing allows students to attend class at their home institutions while participating in class discussions and small group projects with students across the globe. Students are able to access course content and communicate with each other via online discussion forums and e-mail using WebCT Vista.
The class meets in the Special Education & Communication Disorders Building (next to the University Bookstore on Patterson Street) in room 203.
