Preparing College Students for the Workforce

In this AVI-SPL post for No Jitter, you’ll learn about the technology and skills that businesses will value in the years ahead and what that means for higher education. Universities that want to retain prestige and enrollment figures should give their students hands-on experience with the technology solutions that prepare them for success in their career fields.

That experience can come in the form of solutions like advanced visualization and simulation that train learners in safe environments for medical care. Higher education institutions can also help students understand how to use video collaboration systems and how to work productively with colleagues and clients.

This article looks at the public-private partnerships and funding opportunities that can make collaborative solutions part of your school’s core resources.

Does Your Agency Telework?

In its look back at this year’s Telework Week, Polycom notes some encouraging numbers: 94 percent of the 163,000 pledges to telework were from the government. Those who pledged worked two days a week from home and saved 4.5 hours and $90 a week.

If federal employees worked remotely an average of two days a week, the federal government would save $8.7B per year.

The post also addresses concerns about productivity from those who telecommute:

Today’s virtual desktop and cloud storage solutions enable federal employees to access their desktops, applications and important files from anywhere with an Internet connection. And today’s video teleconferencing (VTC) solutions eliminate concerns about collaboration and communication by enabling employees to have face-to-face conversations regardless of their physical location.
