Thousands of miles between friends and family members of Cal Poly Pomona graduates didn't stop many from joining the university's commencement ceremonies this year. Instructional & Information Technology reached out to audiences across the globe by providing videostreams of commencement 2004 on the Internet.
Since commencement ceremonies June 11-13, the live Webcasts and downloads have been viewed more than 30,000 times from 46 countries, including areas of the Middle East and the Pacific Islands.
“I&IT Learning is proud to stream our wonderful commencement so that family and friends around the world can join their loved ones as they celebrate their accomplishments at Cal Poly Pomona,” says David Levin, director of I&IT Learning.
The university has provided streaming video of commencement ceremonies since 2001, with a steadily increasing audience. Each year, staff members have added additional features to the streaming. This year, the nine-member team who worked long hours to produce live video added a tree-mounted camera that provided up-close shots of the commencement podium.
Also beginning this year, DVDs of all ceremonies are available to members of the Cal Poly Pomona Alumni Association. Those interested in receiving a DVD are encouraged to contact and join the Alumni Association. For more information, visit
