Blue Jeans for Education
Teaching and learning in the
comfort of Blue Jeans
80% of administrators, policymakers and educators indicate that interactive video conferencing is helping schools achieve academic goals.
With Blue Jeans, professors can broadcast live lectures to students across the globe using video, in addition to sharing presentations in real time. Whether the course is fully online or based in a classroom, students can connect from their laptop or tablet and learn—wherever they are.
Studies show that when students see the connection between what they are learning and its real-world use case, their motivation soars, and so does their learning.
One of the best, and most popular, ways to make that connection is by introducing subject matter experts into education. Using Blue Jeans, guest lecturers can use video to reach a classroom full of students from across the world, no matter what video platform they’re using.
Virtual Office Hours
Students, professors and counselors have busy schedules that don’t always synch up. With the power of video collaboration, it’s easy for students to utilize the resources that can help them succeed.
Using Blue Jeans, students can join office hours from their browser, mobile device, or Skype and ask the questions that they have with little effort, eliminating the requirement to walk or drive to an on-campus location.
