Video communication for education
Video conferencing solutions for schools & universities
Video conferencing makes classroom walls invisible
Distance education programs utilizing video conferencing extend the reach of the traditional classroom. Colleges and universities are now increasingly using video to enhance the learning experience and engagement of students participating remotely. By including video conferencing, educational institutions can access a wider pool of students and distribute their teaching staff across multiple campuses as well as online.
Video conferencing for education isn't just restricted to imparting knowledge alone; it also acts as a great admin tool for educational institutions. Circulating administrative updates, holding an interactive parent-teacher meeting, and conducting training sessions for teaching and non-teaching staff without requiring the physical presence of the attendees, are some added advantages of the video conferencing solutions for the education industry.
Distance learning programs enhanced by the use of video communication
There are many reasons students choose distance learning: some are unable to travel to a school or university due to distance, disability, or other commitments; some cannot attend classes at traditional times; some already attend classes at one campus but want to access classes only offered at another campus; and some are temporarily unable to attend classes but want to continue their studies.
With Pexip video conferencing, students can attend lectures and classrooms virtually but “in person” using their web browser on their mobile device or computer.
They can also connect with other students and teachers, either one-on-one or in groups. In addition, the platform supports streaming and recording, so students can catch up on-demand with missed classes.
Pexip Powers the World’s Leading and Largest Distance Education Network at Charles Sturt University
Charles Sturt University (CSU) is Australia’s largest regional educational institution with over 20,000 students enrolled in undergraduate, postgraduate, or single subjects. The University uses Pexip to power the institution’s world-class distance learning program, allowing students, faculty and staff to instantly communicate face-to-face on video, fostering engagement and collaboration.
Using Pexip, the continuing education program provides online learning where students and lecturers can meet on video to participate in classroom discussions, knowledge sharing, or collaboration within an easy-to-use virtual environment.
“CSU is the leading provider of distance education in Australia, with 60% of our students studying fully online, so the solution needed to be accessible from many different devices, from any location and be scalable to meet future requirements. By giving our distance learning students video access to classes, we’re taking away some of the fear and mystery of not being able to physically attend campus.”
Philip Roy, acting Executive Director of Information Technology at CSU
