JMC professor featured in CISCO video

John Delacruz, an advertising professor in the College of Applied Sciences and Arts’ School of Journalism and Mass Communications, is featured as one of the faculty members at San Jose State University who is taking advantage of Next Gen classrooms. The video, put together by CISCO, includes interviews with SJSU President Mohammad Qayoumi, former Provost Ellen Junn and other administrators on the benefit of technology on campus. Delacruz’ advertising class is featured throughout the video using telepresence equipment and he is also interviewed about the benefits it brings to his students.

“I’ve always been a great believer in experiential learning,” he said, in the video. “It comes from a design background where we work on real-life projects.”

He said telepresence has allowed him to bring the world into his classroom.

“It enables my students to do work with ad agencies in New York and London without leaving San Jose,” he said.
