Operation Telehem

Boston University Medical Center Command Center, December 14, 2011

This functional exercise required graduate students in the BU HEM program to conduct two of their classes remotely, without the use of our regular virtual classroom technologies or the physical classroom itself. The exercise required students to present their IAP projects so that remote students could watch and grade them accordingly. The Command Center’s Special Projects Branch was activated and allowed CCS, a New Hampshire-based company, to test out their new mobile SMART Board as part of the exercise. This exercise challenged the students’ ability to work within the confines of the incident command system and make use of innovative technologies for communication. The students performed outstandingly and achieved all objectives set forth.
