University Cuts $1 Million in Annual Travel Costs
At the University of Notre Dame, faculty and staff use Cisco WebEx™ products to collaborate with colleagues, to communicate with overseas students, and to reduce travel costs.
Notre Dame administrators cite WebEx’s cross-platform support and ease of use as the primary reasons it’s become so popular among instructors and students. Lectures are attended by students around the world, research teams collaborate closely in secure meetings, and graduate students defend their theses remotely to ensure full faculty involvement. WebEx meetings have saved the school over $1 million in travel costs and reduced its carbon emissions by 4.85 tons of carbon dioxide.
