Eastport South Manor (ESM) Central School District, located in Manorville, New York, was looking for a new way to reach and engage their students despite a tight district budget.
With Cisco’s video solutions, ESM was able to expand the boundaries of the traditional classroom and create a digital learning environment for their students. Video provided access to outside experts and increased video collaboration across the district.
Teachers were also encouraged to incorporate digital media into their lesson plans to increase student engagement across different subjects. For example, the Art Department recently produced videos showcasing artwork that was created by students.
Cisco and ESM will partner together on a webcast on Tuesday, June 14th to highlight why ESM adopted a video strategy, and the benefits they have seen from Cisco’s Digital Media Suite. Dan Espina, Director of Information Services and Technology at ESM, will join the webcast to discuss how video has changed teaching practices and day-to-day activities at the district, and what’s next at ESM.

Carl is responsible for leading Cisco’s worldwide collaboration business, overseeing a global team of 1800 product sales specialists who sell Cisco’s unified communications, telepresence, contact center and web conferencing solutions.
I spend a lot of time talking with customers representing many industries across the globe. Like most industries, financial institutions are looking for new ways to retain and grow their customer base while continuing to provide exceptional customer experiences.
One solution that many are implementing is the use of video to create access to remote experts in a personalized way.
Cisco's Remote Expert solution
With the expanding role of the network, pervasive video allows customers to access all the financial expertise they need at one time, in one place via the channel of their choice. Now consumers are no longer reliant on in-branch resources and schedules they can choose to connect by video and instantly access a pool of experts regardless of location. It’s a win-win for both the customer and the financial institution.
One example of Cisco Remote Expert application in a client retail environment is the Citizens Financial Group Video Banking solution. This pilot, announced today, helped Citizens transform their mortgage and wealth management customer experience by enabling real-time access to experts, information, advice and solutions to both Citizens and Charter One customers.
