Yesterday afternoon we were privileged to receive a grant through Views On Learning to receive a new LifeSize Express system, plus a really cool Ergotron cart and 50 inch display.
Views on Learning, Inc. (VOL) is a registered 501(c)(3) not-for-profit corporation established to provide our Educational Broadband Service (EBS) schools with distance education opportunities that meet the requirements of NCLB and improve student learning.
Thank you to Jeff Gangloff and Les Turner of Views On Learning for coming to install our new HD videoconferencing system! We’re excited to partner with Views on Learning to bring engaging learning opportunities to more students via videoconferencing. I’m looking forward to facilitating the Jazz workshop this summer from this system too.
One of our elementary schools was also able to receive a grant through Views on Learning. You can read more about that here.
That’s a great unit you’ve received. LifeSize packs a ton of the features that other video conferencing solutions previously restricted to the enterprise space.
You should look into working with other LifeSize customers, particularly non-profits, as they might lend you their bridge free of charge (enabling multipoint video conferences).
Either way congrats on the new unit.
