Benefits of video conferencing in education

Educators strive to create the best learning opportunities for as many students as possible. Unfortunately, not all educational institutions have the ability or resources to offer the enriched programs that they wish they could, and students may be left hungry to learn. Video conferencing solutions for education can bring the world to your classroom more simply and cost-effectively than you’d imagine. We invite you to explore how video conferencing from Lifesize will help you optimize learning opportunities and extend the reach of your classroom.

Collaborate globally

In our increasingly global society, it’s more important than ever for students to have an appreciation for and understanding of the world around them. Instantly connecting to other classrooms in countries all over the globe puts a face on geographically distant communities and cultures, preparing students to be citizens and stewards of the more open, more tolerant and more interconnected world of tomorrow.

Enable distance learning

In the past, students in sparsely populated rural areas missed out on many of the opportunities that their urban and suburban peers have taken for granted. Connecting these rural students via video conferencing can dramatically improve the quality of their learning experience. This enables them to attend school from home and gives them access to field trips and experts they would otherwise never have the opportunity to experience.

Enhance curriculum

Imagine a class enriched through the addition of virtual field trips, collaboration exercises with remote classrooms and accessibility to subject-matter experts all around the globe. From visiting world-renowned museums to learning about the stars from astronauts who have seen them from space, the power of 4K video conferencing in the classroom can facilitate incredible, interactive learning experiences. All educators want to make coursework more engaging, and video conferencing software enhances curricula without straining resources.

Live stream and record lessons

Live streaming makes it easy to broadcast seminars, lectures or events to thousands of attendees without having to waste money or time researching venues. Live streamed events let your audience tune in from anywhere around the world and still participate in live Q&A sessions. Video conferencing also enables you to record lectures for students to watch later, whether they were absent or just want to watch again on demand to review notes during study time. Video recording and sharing enables the delivery of recorded course material to be displayed in the classroom, at home on a laptop or via mobile device while on the go.
