OVERVIEW

• Geographically dispersed campus made in-person meetings costly and inconvenient.

• Distance-learning programs in Malaysia, India, and China required dependable, user-friendly online tools to maximize interaction in collaborative workspaces.

• Virtual learning environment required a separate sign-in process, resulting in a significant administrative burden for IT staff and limited adoption of collaboration technology.

• Cisco WebEx collaboration software produces a richly interactive, long-distance learning environment.

• Joint collaboration solution from Cisco and CirQlive provides a virtually endless array of options for optimizing the management of Moodle.

• Single sign-on is now possible through a Microsoft Active Directory portal.

OPERATIONAL IMPACT
Employees scheduled only about 10 Cisco WebEx meetings per month. Now that number is more than 50. “From an IT perspective, the CirQlive solution eliminates a huge amount of work on the back end,” “Collaboration no longer requires an IT support ticket taking over 5 minutes to set up because all credentials are processed through a single Active Directory portal. Now users are empowered to schedule a whole semester’s worth of classes in one click.
QUANTITATIVE BENEFIT

• Cisco WebEx adoption grows from 10 to more than 50 meetings per month. 

• Single-click access speeds meeting setup and empowers users to manage their own meeting schedules.

• Simpler sign-on process promotes tighter security.
