Adoption of Vidyo technology in education has come a long way over the past few years, but our influence and adoption continues to grow–inspiring new ways of teaching and learning from boardrooms to classrooms across the world. In 2011, we released VidyoReplay™, a recording and webcasting component of the Vidyo infrastructure, making it easier than ever before to connect students and teachers from disparate endpoints and capture content and educational lectures for future off-line viewing, anytime and anyplace. We have subsequently announced how Vidyo transforms mediated classrooms at Arizona State University into real time, research and learning environments with the Smithsonian—and shared how our technology links healthcare experts, physicians and instructors with medical students in Haiti via a virtual classroom. Earlier this year, Vidyo again made headlines that focused on our partnership with Internet2, and the resulting news that VidyoConferencing™ will be included in the services available to all Internet2 higher education members and thousands of K-12 public schools. Topping off this exciting list of accomplishments in the realm of education, today, Vidyo announced that the number of education institutions across the globe that are currently using VidyoConferencing to raise the bar in interactive education through video communications and collaboration continues to increase.
From connecting students and parents from anywhere with school counselors, specialists and faculty to the classroom with virtual fieldtrips that supplement K-12 curriculum with real world interactions, video conferencing adoption
in education is on the rise. To put things in context about video conferencing in education, we created this infographic to understand the usage of video conferencing this academic year (click on the image for a large version):
If you’re an educator, a CIO or IT leader from the education community and haven’t yet experienced Vidyo, we can’t wait for you to try it out and let us know what you think.
