Collaboration through connection
In partnership with Cisco Systems, Inc., telepresence technology was installed at each 4-VA university to support the 4 initiatives with seamless videoconferencing. Telepresence provides an immersive experience where everyone feels like they’re in the same room. Using this technology, collaborators discuss research, departments share best practices and universities across Virginia share classes.
At a minimum, each university has two rooms equipped with Cisco telepresence technology. A one-screen Cisco-1300 classroom with six to eight seats and a three-screen Cisco-3210 classroom with 18 seats provide state-of-the-art videoconferencing and cutting edge learning technologies for students.
