Session Title: Same Case Different Place! Unified Communications and the Virtual Classroom
HBX Live is a virtual classroom designed to reproduce the intimacy and synchronous interaction of Harvard Business School’s famed case study method in a digital environment. Leveraging unified communication, broadcast technologies and audio video solutions, HBX Live was designed to deliver an immersive experience remotely. Participants from across the globe can log in concurrently and engage in a real time case discussion while they are at work, on campus, or at home. In the custom-designed studio, a high-resolution video wall mimics the amphitheater-style seating of an HBS classroom, where up to 60 participants are displayed on individual screens simultaneously. Sessions are expertly produced using still and roaming cameras—creating the perspective for participants of being in a real classroom, seeing both the faculty member and other students. Come visit the HBX Live studio located at WGBH to see firsthand how we turned 60 LED panels, 120 speakers, 70 cameras, and more than 20 miles of cable into a one-of-a-kind educational experience that has reached learners across 6 continents in 100 different countries. Suggested Audience: Education, Education Technology, Talent Development, Digital Communications
