Engineering School Delivers Master’s Programs Online

Challenge:
Distance Education Network at USC's Viterbi School of Engineering needed an online tool to enable a highly interactive classroom experience for remote students.


Solutions:
Cisco WebEx technology allows students across the world to collaborate on projects outside of class.


Results:

  • Facilitated program completion rate of more than 80 percent
  • Increased online collaboration for class projects by 250 percent
  • Improved ease of access for local and international offsite students


WebEx is a hosted model from a trusted company, so we know everything will be there, be safe, and be up and running whenever we need it. We've hosted other online meeting solutions ourselves and we've experienced problems with too much network traffic.
