MONTRÉAL - April 27, 2021 - X2O Media, a global provider of virtual collaboration technology for learning institutions, and William & Mary’s Raymond A. Mason School of Business announced today the installation of three X2O OneRoom virtual classrooms at their Williamsburg, VA campus. William & Mary invested in purpose-built virtual classrooms to address the evolving need to accommodate a hybrid model of remote and in-person teaching and learning. OneRoom provides William & Mary remote students with an immersive learning experience that replicates the energy and one-to-one engagement of an in-class lecture. X2O Media, part of the STRATACACHE family of technology companies, collaborated with integrator partner HB Communications to retrofit existing classrooms to innovative OneRoom virtual classrooms and deliver engaging online courses to their worldwide audience.
“Converting existing classrooms to hybrid classrooms with the game-changing X2O OneRoom technology has allowed The Mason School of Business to diversify our traditional operating model. Not only have we expanded our curriculum to offer both in-room and remote students meaningful, one-to-one interactions, we can also invite virtual presenters for an enriching exchange of ideas without restrictions. Our teachers and students have embraced OneRoom virtual classrooms as an effective way to provide an unparalleled learning experience,” said Dean Larry Pulley.
X2O Media’s collaboration technology has helped institutions like William & Mary set a new standard to bridge the gaps that have hindered the growth of the online learning community. Technological features such as high-definition avatar displays with dedicated personal cameras, dynamic breakout groups, interactive displays, and remote collaboration tools offer remote students an engaging learning experience regardless of geography.
“Our partnership with William & Mary is instrumental in helping us develop the product road map to benefit the evolving needs of the education sector. We understand that the education landscape is shifting and, learning institutions need to transform their operating model to embrace all learners regardless of geographical location. William & Mary’s investment in OneRoom virtual classrooms shows a commitment to create a sense of community and engagement for successful online learning. Compared to traditional videoconferencing, OneRoom delivers an enriching experience for all students and professors.” said Mansour Brek, President of X2O Media.
