IU hosts one of the largest videoconferencing installations in the United States, with approximately 100,000 video connection hours each year and 176 videoconferencing-delivered courses each semester.
“With thousands of students, faculty and staff all over the state, connecting with people all over the world, Indiana University requires a videoconferencing system that is robust enough and flexible enough to adapt to the future,” said Anastasia Morrone, IU associate vice president for learning technologies. “By adding Pexip Infinity to IU’s current suite of collaborative technologies, the university gains the edge it needs in our age of global, high-tech communication.”
IU students, faculty and staff –- and their guests –- will need nothing more than a web browser to join a conference: It’s as simple as going to a URL, typing your name, and clicking “join.”
