STARKVILLE, Miss. (WTVA)- Mississippi State University students announced all classes will move online starting Monday, but students from one broadcasting class found it a little challenging to stay away from their new studio.
The students of Take 30 News are currently still out on spring break.
But right now students and teachers are preparing to communicate through a computer screen.
“It’s making for a difficult process for us but we’re adjusting with smiles because we’re making the best of what we can do,” said Communications Department Head Terry Likes.
Students being away from their newly opened television studio may present a challenge.
“Obviously the students can't be here live in the studio. Luckily we were able to lay a foundation for the better part of the semester where we were here on campus,” said Likes.
The MaxxSouth Digital Media Center is located in the Mitchell Memorial Library and opened last year.
Terry Likes said the television studio is in a much more convenient place for the students on campus.
They produce a newscast twice a week on Wednesdays and Thursdays. It airs on 4 pm on MSTV.
But how can a class that demands interaction like this possibly move online?
“So now it’s going to be more individual projects that they can shoot with their phones off campus, submit the work to the professors for critiques,” said Likes.
