Internet graduation

The Granville Central School Technology Department has conducted its final check and pronounced the 2011 graduation web cast ready to go. Web users from across the world can watch the events in Granville at 6:30 p.m., June 24, as the school’s graduation ceremony goes out over the Internet for the third time in as many years.

The ceremony can be found at www.granvillecsd.org. Simply click on the link on the school’s homepage and view the ceremony.

The broadcast will be free, requiring only a high-speed Internet connection for viewing, district technology director Dan Nelson said.

Should anything change with the web cast, instructions for those changes will be posted at the address, or a link, directing viewers to a location where they can view the video, Nelson said.

If the district runs into complications and cannot go out live with the broadcast, it will be available for viewing at a later time as a streaming video.

The first year many viewers who logged on early and at nearly the same time created a log jam on the district’s server overwhelming it.

Those who did not try again later missed the web cast although others reported seeing the video ceremony without problems.

Nelson said those issues were overcome for the second broadcast in 2010 and he expected no troubles in 2011.
