E-Learning to Improve Education
Today’s educators must find ways to meet unfunded legislative mandates while preparing students for a global economy. In the webinar E-Learning Everywhere, Polycom’s Marci Powell will explain how education and training in the 21st century is at a tipping point. Educators must accelerate the learning process and improve student performance while minimizing the impact on resources, productivity and financials. Marci shows how institutions can use innovative learning approaches and best practices that allow knowledge sharing and collaboration to transform the learning environment, motivate and engage students. You’ll discover that, in our mobile society, delivering instruction can be achieved virtually, physically and online.
