MegaMeeting.com Helps Dallas Christian College Reach Out to Students at a Distance(October 11, 2011)
Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) October 11, 2011
Distance learning has become more and more popular throughout educational facilities around the world. Recently, with the help of MegaMeeting.coms web-based video conferencing solutions, the staff at Dallas Christian College has been able to take their education and training programs online.
Integrated into their online education program, MegaMeeting.coms video conferencing services are used as a virtual tutoring center. Students click a link on the colleges help page and from there they are able to engage immediately with a live online tutor. In addition to a virtual tutoring center, the instructors at Dallas Christian College are able to use the features within the MegaMeeting.com product to hold virtual office hours and meet with students outside of the normal classroom hours. Some of the MegaMeeting.com features the instructors are taking advantage of include built-in VoIP audio, showing PowerPoint presentations and the displaying of up to sixteen live video streams in a meeting.
As an added bonus, with many of their instructors scattered across the country, MegaMeeting.com provides a means for these instructors to participate in regular faculty meetings without actually having to be physically present at the college. According to Bruce Long, Associate Dean - Distance Learning, Dallas Christian College, I conduct regular professional development sessions for my online instructors through MegaMeeting.com. It only takes about an hour, because there is no travel time.
One of the major factors as to why Dallas Christian College chose the MegaMeeting.com services was the flexible licensing. Rather than requiring them to purchase a license for each user, MegaMeeting.com provides the college with a site license allowing them to create multiple logins for each one of their users. Bruce Long continued to say MegaMeeting.com allows me to provide video conferencing for my whole team--at a price that fits the budget of our small college.
