Higher education no longer takes place in just the campus classroom. The explosion of online colleges, boot camps, and other technical training courses has put the classroom on the screens, and in the homes, of students and instructors. While this has opened up quality education for everyone, it’s also radically transformed higher education content delivery. Students and instructors are scattered across different regions and time zones. The same can be said for faculty and administration, especially if the institution still has a strong brick and mortar presence. Institutions of higher learning need low-cost, reliable HD video and audio solutions that bring instructors, students, and other faculty together to support education goals. The rapid scaling of online higher education services requires reliable, high quality, and affordable content delivery solutions.
Vidyo is the perfect cloud based solution for institutions of higher learning seeking an affordable, efficient, and scalable video Platform-as-a-Service (Video PaaS).
Engaging Virtual Learning Environments
Video Platform-as-a-Service can disrupt the way higher education is delivered and received. For faculty and staff, Vidyo as an embedded conferencing application allows multiple education stakeholders to collaborate in real time over key quality issues such as curriculum, scheduling, and development.
Vidyo can also support the next iteration of higher education – the inclusive, real-time virtual classroom – by supporting a larger student-to-teacher ratio. The Vidyo higher education solutions can quickly scale with different class sizes and asset deliverables. Video Platform-as-a-Service further limits the barrier to higher education by putting students in an immersive digital classroom where they can engage with instructors, and each other, just like they were on campus.
Seamlessly Connecting Physicians and Patients
The complexities of delivering medical education have limited institutions to delivering learning content to a single, physical meeting place. Video-Platform-as-a-Service removes that constraint, letting medical students and faculty interface and engage with valuable content providers outside of the physical classroom. More importantly, Vidyo can be used to deliver quality health and health education services to places and people that are difficult to access.
Vidyo can be used for virtual office visits, connecting students and residents with tele-patients who may need services and consultation outside of the office. Curriculum developers, policy makers, and quality management professionals can use Vidyo to train and develop remote physicians over a face-to-face, highly collaborative virtual learning space.
A Collaborative, Dynamic Research Environment
Academic research is often conducted and shared across multiple universities. Researchers also need to communication with multiple stakeholders and grantors to ensure the project is on track and moving in the right direction. This causes cluttered inboxes, missed phone calls, confusing project management workflows, and time-consuming travel. Vidyo offers a dynamic way for research teams to meet and communicate. As academic research budgets tighten, eliminating inefficiencies through video conferencing lets research teams allocate a greater portion of the budget to actually conducting and validating research.
Replay and Learn Again
Recorded events, like classroom lectures, seminars, and conferences are intellectual assets that higher education institutions continue to use long after the event is over. The HD recording capabilities of Vidyo ensure that educators and learners will have access to key information products for as long as they are necessary to support higher learning goals. VidyoReplay lets higher education institutions create content libraries that can easily be stored and edited for future distribution. This turns mobile devices and tablets into multi-point content sharing systems.
Vidyo and the Future of Higher Education Content Delivery
Vidyo cloud conferencing puts video Platform-as-a-Service on the device of your choice. As an application service, no hardware is required.
