CSUMB_TP_PaperVideo collaboration and telepresence technologies will play an increasingly important role in transforming the delivery of education.

“Telepresence expands the learning environment by offering students a virtual window on the real world, by reducing administration costs so more can be spent on teaching, and offering increased equity of access to learning for all.”

We are pleased to introduce an important new paper from California State University, Monterey Bay (CSUMB) entitled, “Facing the World: Telepresence in Education” that provides practical guidance for educators to effectively plan, implement and realize the benefits of video collaboration in K-20 classrooms.

This guide authored by Daniel Theobald and John Ittelson highlights the education benefits of telepresence and includes case studies that document important use cases in both K12 schools and higher education institutions. This new resource also provides “Toolkits” with practical guidance and  recommendations on:

  • Preparing Your Business Case
  • Equipment Selection
  • Network Considerations
  • Applying for Grants
  • Accessing Support Organizations
  • Telepresence and National Education Priorities
  • Teaching via Telepresence
  • Benefits of Telepresence
  • Content Providers

Thanks to CSUMB, Daniel Theobald and John Ittelson for this valuable resource for educators. Download your copy of “Facing the World: Telepresence in Education” today. We also invite you to post your comments with additional best practices and planning recommendations.
