JMC’s Global Communication Initiative uses Technology to Connect Students with Industry

by Bob Rucker

Advertising Professor John Delacruz has successfully launched a new JMC School Global Communication Initiative using the DBH 225 Cisco Telepresence technology.

Last week, Professor de la Cruz arranged for his advertising students to make presentations to an agency in New York City, the nation’s largest media market.

We would like to recognize all JMC faculty who have been using the DBH 225 projection system in classes. John’s session last week was the first attempt using the technology to connect with professional industry contact on a national scale.

JMC guests from Afghanistan were in attendance at the event, along with Professor Diane Guerrazzi who captured video. Special thanks to John Briar for helping test the technology before last week’s event. Professor Delacruz is set to give a report on the technology to JMC Faculty; look for a blog follow-up here on the innovative use of technology in JMC classrooms.

JMC faculty and student groups are anxious to use the Cisco Telepresence technology. The JMC Global Communications Committee is meeting soon to set-up guidelines for scheduling and using DBH 225 Telepresence.

This is another example, in a now growing list, of innovative edu-tech approaches being used across CASA departments.
