Today, students at Gallatin College at Montana State University are showing us how they are using collaborative technology, like Cisco Webex Boards and Teams, to stay connected between classes, labs and more with virtual meeting spaces, messaging, file sharing, interactive whiteboard, video calling and more—just like the researchers at MSU.
Gallatin College is benefiting from the vison of MSU CIO Jerry Sheehan: “If you think about the network as a functional bridge, it becomes the thing that connects all of our different areas of business. At the same time, it makes it easier and more efficient.” At MSU, Cisco’s Catalyst 9000 wireless and switching intent-based network, combined with Cisco Webex, enable students to work smarter and more effectively.
What this means is that the same research challenge the university solved—securing and sharing files across the campus and the world—enables students at Gallatin College as well. Students are benefiting from Webex Teams features by communicating inside and outside of the classroom, sharing their lab coursework and uploading information just as MSU’s professional researchers are able to do in their work today.
As Montana State University’s students, researchers and faculty join Cisco’s DevNet community to help the next generation of learning, I look forward to becoming a student again and seeing what the folks at MSU can show me.
