According to a Wisconsin Department of Administration press release, WisconsinEye announced on Monday that it has reached agreement with the department to launch the WisconsinEye channel on the BadgerNet video network serving education and government sites throughout the state’s 72 counties.
The partnership with BadgerNet will bring WisconsinEye into over 255 schools and 54 college campuses across the state…
“WisconsinEye has just the kind of public content that BadgerNet was created to provide for schools and public organizations,” said state Chief Information Officer Oskar Anderson. “Bringing WisconsinEye to more classrooms will help students gain a better understanding of how state government works.”
BadgerNet was created by the State of Wisconsin to provide next generation voice, data, and video services to state agencies, local governments, UW campuses, technical colleges, private colleges and universities, public and private K-12 schools, and libraries. A key goal of the BadgerNet project is to enhance statewide educational systems for both children and adults.
