MONTRÉAL—July 20, 2021 - X2O Media, a global provider of virtual collaboration technology for learning institutions, and Emory University’s Goizueta Business School announce the launch of a next generation teaching innovation with the installation of three X2O OneRoom virtual classrooms for Goizueta’s degree and non-degree programs. The Roberto C. Goizueta Business School invested in OneRoom classrooms known as Global Classrooms at Emory University, that are poised to elevate the overall classroom experience, extend global reach and eliminate the limitations of geography in business education. X2O Media, part of the STRATACACHE family of technology companies, collaborated with integrator partner AVI Systems to custom-build and install the three OneRoom classrooms.
OneRoom technology is an innovative blended learning platform that provides an immersive and engaging one-to-one learning experience for in-class and remote students and supports both synchronous and asynchronous learning. The classrooms are equipped with dedicated cameras, high-definition audio, and interactive whiteboards. The system’s dynamic breakout groups and intuitive user interface allow all students to experience engaging learning regardless of geography. These features enable Goizueta Business School to open their MBA and Executive Education programs to a wider set of domestic and international students by providing an enhanced learning experience that encourages the exchange of ideas, experiences and culture.
“For Goizueta, the time is now to explore the benefits and possibilities of digital learning and what it means for the future of teaching. The X2O OneRoom solution provides a perfect fit for busy working professionals as more individuals appreciate the flexibility to participate in a dynamic learning experience from anywhere in the world,” said Nicola Barrett, Chief Corporate Learning Officer at Goizueta Business School.
“As leaders in business education, we are delighted to incorporate X2O Media’s OneRoom technology into our classrooms. The technology allows us to offer our students an immersive learning experience and deliver content in a highly engaging way for remote and hybrid classroom environments. The collaboration tools in OneRoom classrooms enable faculty to teach in a “traditional” way while incorporating analytics, experiential learning and cutting-edge edtech mechanisms to students that are unable to be on campus. OneRoom creates a superior mode for the dissemination of information, allowing our footprint in business education to grow without any compromise to the experience and learning,” said Jaclyn Conner, Associate Dean, Executive MBA at the Goizueta Business School.
“It is truly inspiring to see how Goizueta Business School has harnessed the potential of OneRoom to bring digital learning to the next level. The Roberto C. Goizueta Global Classrooms create world-class educational experiences without sacrificing the one-to-one connection that is key to learning. The scalability and flexibility of OneRoom empowers professors to teach while interacting with students through break-out groups, polls, whiteboards, chat and learning analytics to create an engaging learning experience that is impossible with traditional videoconferencing,” said Mansour Brek, President of X2O Media.
