Thumbs up to our friends at Bucks County Community College, which was featured today by Fox 29 Philadelphia for its role as an innovator in distance learning.
The news video focuses on the cost savings available to BCCC students as a result of the online programs offered at Bucks. Click here to open the Fox 29 news video in a new window. Background: Bucks has been on-board with OnSync since spring '08. They've quickly and successfully made OnSync a part of their distance learing program as a means of reaching a wider audience of prospective students, and reducing the cost of commuting for those already enrolled.
One of BCCC's greatest successes has been in using the product to facilitate a completely online version of their "speech" class, where each student makes a presentation "in front of" the rest of the group... using the video features of OnSync to gauge non-verbal feedback and reception from the other students in class. Way to go, Bucks!... Good success story.
