Wharton Imagines Future of Learning with BlueJeans Video Conferencing

Read Paper
The Wharton School at the University of Pennsylvania is a premiere institution for business education. Over the years the School has sought to extend learning experiences and to connect students and faculty beyond the classroom. When connecting remotely to study groups and classrooms, students often face technological challenges like being unable to see faculty or difficulty sharing documents. This challenge becomes further pronounced when dispersed students and faculty members need to collaborate with one another. To overcome these challenges, Wharton has embraced modern, adaptable video conferencing to support a shared learning experience in every classroom.
