The introduction of bandwidth-intensive learning applications, including video and peer-to-peer applications in teaching has fundamentally transformed the way teachers teach and students learn. The federal E-rate program has forever changed the technology landscape of school districts and libraries in the United States.
Receiving funding is not guaranteed, and following the E-rate process and procedures is critical – especially when thousands, even millions, of dollars are at stake for your district. The rewards that new, education-specific cutting edge education applications deliver to the classroom far outweigh the effort required to participate in the program. This paper briefly examines the promise of new, education-specific applications, the advanced network services that enable them, and the role of the E-rate program.

One of the simplest, most effective ways to bring healthcare to the community level is through video collaboration. When video technology is enabled through a standards-based, scalable platform, community members can all join a multipoint video call to collaborate and work together with professionals and even with groups of similarly afflicted, empathetic peers to address health issues. Patients benefit from more regular evaluations and better access to specialty support. They participate in live or recorded education sessions—regardless of location or ability to travel. And with today’s move to ubiquitous video, you cannot only do one-to-one video sessions, but groups can meet over video to share ideas and best practices.
