DyKnow Provides Collaboration Software Grants
- By Dian Schaffhauser
For a short time DyKnow is offering grants to colleges and universities in the United States and Canada for its collaboration software and related services. The company, which sells DyKnow Vision, will choose 10 institutions from among those who submit proposals outlining how they hope to enhance teaching and learning through interaction and collaboration. Recipients will also receive DyKnow's new PowerPoint plugin, which allows educators to create content and initiate a DyKnow session directly in PowerPoint.
"We believe this grant will help provide educators with the tools to maximize time and resources while enhancing teaching and learning through technology," said Laura Konkle, company president.
Vision combines functionality for discussion or lecture capture, content delivery, student response, and collaborative tools.
Registration for the proposals closes on Nov. 25, 2009. Winning schools will be notified on Dec. 5, 2009. Further information can be found here.
