William & Mary Installs Virtual Classroom Tech for Hybrid Learning

To accommodate the hybrid model of remote and in-person teaching and learning, William & Mary's Raymond A. Mason School of Business has rolled out virtual classroom technology in three learning spaces on campus. The institution selected X2O Media's OneRoom solution for the revamp, which allows students and instructors to interact and collaborate whether they are in class or learning remotely.

Features of the virtual classroom system include:

  • High-definition avatar displays with dedicated personal cameras;
  • Interactive displays;
  • Breakout groups and collaborative tools; and
  • A permanent content repository.

"Converting existing classrooms to hybrid classrooms with the game-changing X2O OneRoom technology has allowed The Mason School of Business to diversify our traditional operating model," noted Larry Pulley, dean of the Mason School, in a statement. "Not only have we expanded our curriculum to offer both in-room and remote students meaningful, one-to-one interactions, we can also invite virtual presenters for an enriching exchange of ideas without restrictions. Our teachers and students have embraced OneRoom virtual classrooms as an effective way to provide an unparalleled learning experience."
