Blackboard Collaborate, a simple and reliable virtual classroom solution to power online teaching and web conferencing needs, helped Ellinogermaniki Agogi (Hellenic-German Education) to minimize the impact of Covid19 lockdown on the educational process through virtual classroom technologies.
More specifically, Ellinogermaniki Agogi trusted the extensive domain expertise of Athens Technology Center (ATC) in eLearning technologies and chose Blackboard Collaborate distance learning Solution. Their first priority was to smoothly run all courses for the senior students during the period when schools remained closed due to the Covid19 pandemic.
Blackboard Collaborate is an end-to-end platform for eLearning and teleconferencing, designed specifically for the needs of educational organizations.
According to Mr. Nikos Katsifos, Head of IT of Ellinogermaniki Agogi, “the Blackboard Collaborate user interface , facilitated communication, presentation, interaction and teaching. Using a computer, a tablet or a mobile device and through a simple browser, students and teachers felt together in the same classroom, participating in live classes.”
Additionally, Ms. Maria Mattheou, HCM solutions Director of ATC, stressed the value of the “blended learning” model, and the benefits that can be obtained by educational organizations of all levels: “Access to innovative tools, can help students assimilate the required material at their own pace, as teachers can engage more with them and promote deeper learning. Blackboard Collaborate can extend access to diverse student populations, even sub-represented groups. In this way, we will be able to provide an equal educational experience for all. “
