The ITS audiovisual team is working with the Quantitative Learning Center (Q Center) to pilot the use of Cisco Webex Board. These touch-based devices enable people in different locations to present, whiteboard, video or audio conference, and even annotate shared content. The Q Center is using these boards to facilitate the interaction between tutors on the Storrs campus and students taking quantitative courses at regional campuses. The pilot with the Avery Point campus will track use, evaluate the effectiveness of the interaction, and gain a better understanding of scheduling demands. This information will guide future pursuit of this type of technology. Additional campuses will follow.
