Improving the Education Experience

The University of Portsmouth is home to students from all over the world who are studying anything from science to business. Students and faculty needed a more secure way to interview, collaborate, and work smarter, whether they needed a video-enabled interview from the other side of the world or to practice group presentations. Webex enables them to use telecommunications to learn and work smarter.

Transforming how students learn

Challenges

  • Communicating between faculty and students
  • Collaborating with faculties across the world
  • Facilitating a secure and inexpensive way to host interviews with international students

Results

  • Faculty can collaborate better from anywhere and everywhere
  • Students use telecommunications  to keep in touch with each other and their teachers during study periods
  • International students can be interviewed in a more secure way and accept their place within the same day

Cisco Webex is making a difference

"Cisco have given us a great understanding of how we need to adapt to enhance the student experience. It is important to give our students access to new technologies that will make an impact on their education and set them up for their future careers."

Kirsten Farrell-Savage, Principal Lecturer and Admissions Lead, University of Portsmouth
