Learning in the Cloud: IVCi Announces New Video Collaboration Services for Education Sector
Comprehensive suite of distance learning solutions help expand the reach of education.
Hauppauge, NY (PRWEB) October 23, 2012
IVCi, LLC (http://www.ivci.com), a leading provider of unified communications (UC) solutions, today announced cloud-based video conferencing services designed specifically for the needs of education customers. The announcement was made from the Visual Communications Industry Group Annual Conference in Monterey, CA, where IVCi is an exhibitor. IVCi´s cloud-based services are ideal for the classroom because they make video easy for educators to use and ensure calls are reliable each time.
With this new offering, schools connect to IVCi´s comprehensive suite of cloud-based video services; IVCi manages all aspects of the video call, including the people, the processes, and the technology needed to make visual collaboration successful – from any place and from any device. Educators can seamlessly extend the reach of collaboration from the classroom to mobile users at off-campus locations, and to other learning organizations across the globe.
“One of the biggest challenges our education customers face is the lack of funding for technology that could facilitate learning in the classroom,” said IVCi CEO Bob Swing. “What l like about our service offering for educators is that it removes the burden of justifying a heavy investment in equipment, and delivers a smooth, high quality learning experience at a reasonable cost. This keeps teachers and students coming back to get the greatest use out of the system.”
Cloud-based services for K-12 through higher education clients include:
- Cloud-based and pay-per-use options that facilitate distance learning and collaboration through virtual classrooms and field trips
- Platform independent connectivity between Polycom, Skype, Cisco, Google Talk, Microsoft Lync, web browsers and more
- The ability to connect multiple students via consumer video solutions
- Virtual Collaboration Rooms that can double class sizes or connect remote classrooms
- Customized AV integrated rooms designed for lecture halls, auditoriums or standard classrooms
IVCi´s cloud services help schools avoid the upfront capital expenditures and management challenges often associated with video conferencing and collaboration technologies. These services are compatible with both public and private networks, removing many of the technical hurdles educators may face when migrating their systems to the cloud.
IVCi is hosting a web seminar on Thursday November 2, 2012 at 2:00pm Eastern to showcase these solutions. To learn more visit http://www2.ivci.com/learning.
