"These results demonstrate the power of video-based learning. A system that delivers simultaneously on several core needs for schools -- for example one that reaches a wider audience, improves engagement, and lowers costs for educational institutions. It can also do this at the right time, in the right place, and on the right device for students. This rare opportunity to do more with less plays right into the needs of today's educators as well as learners across the spectrum."
--Justin Greeves, vice president, Research, The Center for Digital Education
"Video is already a proven technology in distance learning environments, and we're delighted to see this trend grow. The key to driving further adoption is simplicity and pervasiveness. Avaya's video conferencing solution brings several unique benefits to video-based learning including a freely distributed client, the ability for students to join a class with a single click, and our 'data slider' feature, which allows students to review previously shared content without interrupting the class."
-- Bob Romano, vice president, Video Marketing, Avaya
