The three-year renovation of the Canada Science and Technology Museum includes an array of technology — including edge-blending projection and video collaboration — that creates an immersive experience for visitors, improves outreach programming, and improves the meeting experience for staff. Audiovisual technology like wireless microphones and conferencing solutions empowers the museum to provide educational events that can include remote participants.

At the AVI-SPL page “Strategies for Improving Student Success When They Join the Workforce,” you’ll learn about the kind of technology solutions that can help prepare students for their careers. You’ll also find links to resources that offer ideas for using display technology in higher education (including ambitious deployments led by AVI-SPL). Other topics at this page include:
- Why public-private partnerships work
- How to prepare students for tomorrow’s workforce
- Ways to close the soft-skills gap (companies expect employees to have skills like resiliency and the ability to work in teams).
When higher education schools and private businesses work together, they can help students learn the skills they need to be successful as they move into the full-time workforce. To help you understand what makes such partnerships work, AVI-SPL has created a page called “Strategies for Improving Student Success When They Join the Workforce.”
The first section of the page looks at the benefits of public-private partnerships that help train high-school students, college students, and displaced workers so they are prepared for their chosen career. It also includes a Q&A with Tracie Bryant-Cravens, AVI-SPL VP of Sales for State/Local Government & Education. Tracie explains why these partnerships between higher education and private organizations result in improved education and career opportunities.
This webinar will cover the basics of applying high-end, automated distance learning and lecture capture techniques in UC environments in higher education.

This online platform is ideal for teaching in a digital world. During this event, we’ll highlight:
