With the passing of time, educational technology has empowered the presenter to reach the audience to produce the desired level of learning, collaboration and interactivity. Most important point of this information is: Interactivity between students and instructors has increased with each step of technology Today we truly are at the highest levels of interactivity (voice, video, data and web) and have created the virtual classroom (access to information) environment
Key Point – In today ’s business environment, organizations of all types are experiencing new pressures due to key trends forcing changes in the business landscape. These trends in three main areas (slide builds) Organizational and Globalization Economic Trends Today ’s global economy puts new pressures on executives who need to answer to regulatory requirements and while stakeholder performance expectations have never been higher Further, many of our organizations have offices, branches, or subsidiaries in far reaching locations, making continuity between work groups more difficult. Technology Trends IP network convergence and ubiquity, reduced bandwidth/cost Allows multiple forms of communication onto a common platform – Unified Communications – finally becoming a reality Presence, Mobility are driving more real-time, life-like communication experiences. Easily connect at any time. Social Trends People want to live and work where they want (closer to family and friends, cost of living, or beach/mountain preferences) The best people for a job don ’t necessarily live in your company’s location. We expect instant communications as consumers – IM, texting, cell phones, email – now expecting instant connection too in the workplace Green movement as individuals and companies are expected to minimize their carbon footprint (CO2 emissions) – enterprise, especially global, want to demonstrate good corporate and global “citizenship” Go to next slide …..
What can we do as business leaders to reduce the distance barriers and allow our organizations to be a “High Performance Workplace”? Key Point – The “high-performance” workplace is a concept developed by Harvard (HBR July 2005) to describe how organizations must collaborate to complete effectively in a global economy. It boils down to communicating better, making rapid collaboration decisions, while leveraging the knowledge base of employees and working in parallel throughout the organization regardless of location. This sounds like a reasonable objective, so how do we make this happen? Go to next slide ….
Key Point - Distance can be removed by deploying Polycom collaboration solutions that make meeting across geographies just as if you were sitting next to the people. Using the highest quality video, voice and content sharing communications while being able to instantly come together in a virtual meeting makes it just like being there. Furthermore, coming together without the need for travel is environmentally friendly way to host meetings and an important new method for reducing an organizations overall carbon footprint. NOTE: the large “play button” below the final bullet “It’s all in sight” can link to the VC2 video if stored on your computer. Playing this video during the presentation adds a high degree of impact for the audience. Instructions as follows for enabling the video: Download the 768 version of “Its all in Site” from the Polycom sales portal with the video solutions group area at this link (paste link string below into browser) http://planetpolycom/sites/sales/vsg/product/VC2.aspx?RootFolder=%2fsites%2fsales%2fVSG%2fVC2Podcasts%2fPolycom%20VC2%20Its%20All%20in%20Sight%20Compilation&FolderCTID=&View=%7b3BE05C47%2dAF3C%2d40A4%2dA4AE%2dDE2B8258221F%7d Copy .wmv file to your Desktop Open the properties of the file, make sure “Opens With” and specifies Windows Media Player Go back to the presentation and test as follows:, put in slide show mode, click the play button, PowerPoint should hyperlink to the video and play Video lasts for about 2 ½ minutes Go to next slide ….
The slide is intended as a high level snapshot of the full portfolio of Polycom solutions. Presenter should not go into detail on this slide … it is included as a high level overview when time is limited or just as a level setting prior to proceeding into a more detailed product presentation. Go to next slide ….
Currently, revenue generating activity is driven with alumni donations, and research grants…but there is a new method…revenue generation via OUTREACH. And for this term, “outreach’ I mean providing programs from the university directly to Colleges, High Schools and Primary Schools Some examples of how Universities are generating income are in Australia; Charles Sturt University have many Polycom HDX endpoints through our the university, however for this special project, Astronomer David McKinnon was looking for some outside support. Polycom loaned him an HDX unit on a long term basis, for the opportunity to become a Content Provider for Polycom. His program provides schools around the world an opportunity to dial in using videoconference and control the Telescope and learn about the Australian Southern Cross stars. David McKinnon is based at CSU campus in Bathurst, NSW Australian National University – have a partnership with Manhattan School of Music. They will be offering Master Classes (to Conservatories), Music Outreach (to K-12) and Mentoring to private students all using Polycom HD technology and Music Mode. ANU are based in Canberra, Australia University of Newcastle, also provide similar music tuition and are based in Newcastle, NSW.
Outside the University circle, many organisations provide digital outreach programs to K-12. Their team includes performance artists and recently graduated Science Major students who develop a program and deliver it over videoconference to students. For this, they are graded in their final year of University. If you think of your own science undergrads, what programs might they develop for your university if given a chance?
Corporate presenters are in high demand, your Vice Chancellor or a Head of Faculty may be called to give a Keynote…perhaps instead of flying across the world, they could deliver it by Video?
Some subjects that are in high demand for outreach include Mathematics
Engineering Design and Manufacturing
Medical Research, live surgeries
COSI Columbus are a content provider based in the United States. They have a number of sessions which incorporate surgery and have won Teacher’s Favorite awards as a result. They charge $280 per session.
The Canadian Space Agency provides content to schools on Aerospace Engineering
Perhaps you could think of a few faculties who might like to trial outreach to schools…? If you have any questions on how to do this, please feel free to approach me after this presentation. Thank you for listening.
