Avaya Canada has won a contract to supply Niagara College with video conferencing tools that will be used to teach future healthcare professionals.
The school's Applied Health Institute will use the Avaya Scopia video conferencing system for instruction and interaction in the classroom or the boardroom using mobile and desktop devices, Avaya said Wednesday.
The company will also deploy its Avaya Flare Experience mobile collaboration system, which works to help teaching staff and senior management share best practices and other information in real time.
Avaya Flare Experience also is designed to give users access to desktop video, telephony, social media and web conferencing tools.
“Equipping the next generation of employees means acquainting them with the tools that they’ll be using in today’s workplace as well as those innovations on the cutting edge of the future,“ said Ross Pellizzari, Avaya Canada president and managing director.
“We’re extremely excited to continue our collaboration with Niagara College in its work to further education through advanced technology,” Pellizzari added.
Niagara College will also use the Avaya Aura Session Manager, which aims to consolidate communications using different media, networks, applications and devices.
