Architectural Studios Online: The Internet Studio Network

Through the Internet Studio Consortium, up to 300 architecture students in Miami, Argentina, Chile, Ecuador, and Venezuela collaborate in semester-long design studios. The initiative uses Internet and video conferencing, and high-end telecommunication and digital technology, to enrich the pan-American educational experience. It is also part of AMPATH, which obtained a $25 million grant in 2001 to connect national university networks in Latin America and the Caribbean to the Internet2 server at Florida International University.
