As students, teachers, parents and administrators settle into a new school year, ensuring that technology can support a new way of learning, that is secure, is top of mind for all. Some will return to the physical classroom with new social distancing safety measures in place, while others will pick up where they left off and resume online-only courses. Most will take a blended approach. To help educators meet the needs of their students, today Cisco Collaboration announced a preview of Webex Classrooms, which adapts Cisco’s highly secure platform to meet the specific online learning needs for the hybrid classroom.
Cisco Webex Classrooms is a secure go-to place for teachers, students, and parents to more naturally connect. It provides a classroom structure where students and teachers can organize classes, review syllabuses, schedule and launch classes, host virtual office hours and more. Students can easily connect with each other or simply access course resources, and parents can stay involved too – by easily scheduling virtual parent-teacher conferences.
