Session Information

Year: 2016 | Time: 4:15pm-5:45pm (Poster Session) | Location: (Fenwick 2nd Floor) Poster Session

Abstract

Our office manages videoconference and TelePresence technology for George Mason University as well as several options for desktop conferencing that are interoperable with our room systems. Currently we are using these different technologies as a means for teaching courses collaboratively with other universities both nationally and internationally, for students who are located across the different Mason campuses, for faculty who are living abroad, and research collaboration with external entities.

            CVT would like to host a compact session and participate in the poster session. We would explain the technology, how it is being used at Mason to advance opportunities for our faculty and students and have a faculty member present to discuss their experience.

            This technology is an excellent tool in Mason’s mission to be a “university for the world.” Our technology affords the faculty and students a creative solution to connect with institutions and organizations on a global level and collaborate in ways they were not previously able to.
