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

We’ve been singing the praises on this blog about the Federal government’s efforts to encourage telecommuting for its employees. While great strides continue to be made, new research reveals some hurdles that still remain, before widespread adoption will ensue.
