I’ve just had a very short but interesting meeting with a fast-talking chap from CISCO who is meeting various folk from around the university to discuss potential partnership opportunities.
Mike is bringing CISCO’s networking expertise to education and described the company’s vision of using computer technology and the internet to engage young learners in a more personalised manner than is currently facilitated by traditional, class based education. I was immediately struck with potential synergies with PC3 (see previous post)
Also, CISCO have recently acquired WebEx Connect which the website describes as “the foundation for a comprehensive collaboration strategy that delivers instant collaboration for your employees and an extensible development platform for you.” It certainly sounded like it might be highly relevant for PERSoNA and Mike will arrange a demo for us shortly.
