Mid-State Education District - Technology
Technology Data Collection Form - for Technology Coordinators
Mid-State Technology is the largest fiber-optic network in the state, encompassing nearly 120 miles of district-owned cabling. This allows us to run as much data, video, and audio as needed for classes and Internet without relying on public ISPs.
Interactive Television - ITV
By Providing courses at both high school and college levels via interactive television (ITV) in conjunction Central Lakes College, St. Cloud State University, and Pine Technical College, MSED is providing opportunities for students that would normally be unavailable to them through traditional classroom instruction. By doing so, we support the local school district by allowing them to retain students that would otherwise be forced to leave the district for educational opportunities accessible elsewhere.
Despite being one of the smallest technology co-ops in the state in terms of enrollment, MSED is one of the busiest in terms of ITV programming. We serve an average of 500 students per semester, and are continually planning new ways to improve our distance learning programs.
