Pervasive Video Extends University's High-Touch Culture
California Baptist University (CBU) is a private Christian college offering bachelor's and master's degrees throughout California and online. Their challenges is to accommodate growth by delivering rich, distance-learning experiences, strengthen university's high-touch culture through face-to-face video and implement single voice, video, and data infrastructure to boost IT and end-user efficiencies. They chose Cisco to overcome these challenges. They implemented Cisco WebEx technology. Cisco WebEx technology creates richer student-teacher interactions with face-to-face video, Cisco TelePresence offers lifelike video quality and Cisco Unified Communications facilitates more efficient, flexible voice communications. The results of deploying Cisco were built collaboration architecture that supports university's progressive environment, reduced extra effort required by faculty to teach online and enhanced university wide collaboration and interaction through pervasive video.
