Students from the Washington Center, George Mason University in Virginia, and Purdue University in Indiana, participated by broadband feed in a distance learning class. 

Harvard University Professor of Global Communication and Public Policy Matthew Baum talked by video link from Cambridge, Massachusetts, about “Journalism in the 21st Century.” Many video clips were shown during the class.
