Professor Stays Home; Conducts Class With Two-Way Radio (Apr, 1935)


UTILIZING “micro-waves,” Marconi’s latest discovery in the radio field, Dr. C. C. Clark can lecture to his General Science class a quarter of a mile away without leaving the quiet comfort of his own home.

A receiver in the class-room is tuned to the professor’s lecture, and questions are answered directly as they are relayed over the two-way transmission by the professor’s assistant. Such a device will permit instructor to carry on his lectures even while sick and confined to his home.
