Interactive Video Transforming Teaching and Learning

- February 7, 2012 - 0 Comments

Cisco recently hosted two customer roundtable discussions on the topic of “interactive video and how is being used in teaching and learning” for K-12 and higher education. There has been much interest in the benefits of using video in teaching and learning,  and as schools, colleges and universities are adopting it more broadly to expand curriculum options,  we are seeing a positive impact on student outcomes. K12 moderator, Alan November, discusses how the  “flipped classroom” model is improving student test scores and the role of video technology as a key enabler.
