An evolution of Vscene in action - Tim Boundy

4,708 views

Published on

The Jisc Vscene videoconferencing service will be evolving over the coming year with help from our new strategic partner, Ajenta. With this new partnership, there will be improved focus on enhancing the teaching and learning experience.

In this workshop you can discover how, through VScene, students learn through virtual classrooms, e-learning and MOOCS as well as enhanced interoperability with desktop applications and mobile devices.

Teaching and learning has been enhanced for a community of 1200 physicists, academics, research staff and postgraduate students, whilst significantly reducing their annual teaching and collaboration overheads. How? By effective use of VScene.
