The Cisco TelePresence Education portfolio creates an immersive, face-to-face experience - empowering you to collaborate with others like never before. By combining Cisco Collaboration application technologies with education-specific designs, participants all feel as if they are in the same room whether they are in person or joining from a remote classroom. The Cisco TelePresence Education portfolio is designed to transform the way students learn and the way instructors present material in a collaborative, distributed environment. Schools are using these education solutions to take full advantage of scarce expertise, extend the reach of subject-matter experts, control costs, make administrative decisions faster, reduce travel costs, increase student retention, and enhance staff development. With the advent of Cisco TelePresence conferencing, many organizations have realized the advantages of maintaining a virtual learning environment with a remote site, while still being able to collaborate using high-quality presentations.
