Nova Scotia Community College Realizing Its Mission With Polycom Telepresence
More than 25,000 Canadians are building new futures at Nova Scotia Community College (NSCC), whose five academic schools offer more than 100 programs through a network of 13 campuses and six community learning centers. Its mission - to build the province's economy and quality of life through education and innovation - isn't just standard community college boilerplate. NSCC uses Polycom telepresence and infrastructure solutions to maximize the reach of its teaching resources across a peninsula that takes more than eight hours to traverse by car. NSCC deployed 12 Polycom HDX 9000 series room telepresence systems, 6 Polycom HDX 4000 personal telepresence systems and Polycom RSS 2000 recording. The facilities enable NSCC to deliver 13 courses via telepresence, which amounts to 500 hours of video conferencing.
