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.
It’s well worth your time to listen to these very interesting discussions and best practices sharing with our panelists:
K-12 Schools: Dr. Susan Holliday, Education Technology Director, Capistrano Unified School District, and Matt Grose, Deer River Public Schools, hosted by Alan November, November Learning
Higher Education: Link Alexander, Vice Chancellor Technology Services, Lone Star College System, and James Web, CIO, West Texas A& M University, hosted by John Halpin, Center for Digital Education
Cisco Director of Engineering, Chris Barwick, discusses Cisco Lecture Vision and state-of-the-art technologies available from Cisco to capture, transform and share class lectures

When you use WebEx for a video conference, you don’t have to lose what you do in that moment. Instead of furiously taking notes, you can relax and actually participate in the meeting. Just press record when you get started and let WebEx do the rest.
