VC-NET videoconferencing solution for e-learning

Posted on

The latest organisation to take advantage of VC-NET’s affordable videoconferencing solutions is Teach First – an independent charity which works to address educational disadvantage by training exceptional graduates to become effective, inspirational teachers and leaders in schools in challenging circumstances. 

Following a competitive tender, Teach First selected a Tandberg solution from VC-NET.  Matthew Horine, Head of IT at Teach First, explains: “Sharing and learning is fundamental to Teach First, whether we are in the classroom, communicating with our blue-chip business partners, or sharing best practice with colleagues around the world.  As the charity grows and our networks develop, video-conferencing facilities will become an even more important tool to keep our teachers, ambassadors and staff connected.”

Executive Chairman of VC-NET, Chris Wade, comments: “Teach First chose to work with us because of our experience with organisations such as TreeHouse, the national charity for autism education, and our unrivalled understanding of how to promote and adopt video conferencing internally.  It’s wonderful to see video conferencing technology being deployed for such great causes.”

The technology has progressed significantly and now offers a real, viable and affordable alternative to face to face meetings.  HD videoconferencing is at the heart of this, dispelling many of the old myths of poor quality.” 

One of the most exciting trends is towards a managed videoconferencing solution.  Businesses are realising that videoconferencing is an essential business service that is easily outsourced in the same way that you outsource your payroll services.  For example, VC-NET can take an existing, or newly purchased video system and register it to their booked or reservationless bridging service.  This gives the customer self service or assisted bridged calls, to an unlimited number of endpoints.
