WebRTC and Education – the Webinar Edition (and a Bonus)

05/12/2016

Want to learn more about WebRTC in education?

Next week, testRTC will be hosting a webinar titled How WebRTC ushers the next wave of e-Learning innovation. As a co-founder of testRTC, I am tasked with the actual creation and hosting of the webinar, which means I will be speaking about what vendors are doing WebRTC when it comes to education and where I see their challenges.

I haven’t done a webinar in quite some time, so this is going to be fun for me.

We’ve decided to use Crowdcast as our webinars platform for it. Partially because it is a WebRTC based service, and I do love dog fooding. But also because I received some good reviews about it.

If I had to pick two very active verticals in the domain of WebRTC, these would be healthcare and education. We see this also at testRTC, where we help these vendors in testing and deploying their services to production.

Education and WebRTC webinar

Next Wednesday

So here’s what we’re doing next Wednesday – me and you:

  • On December 14 at 14:30 EDT, we’re going to meet online
  • I am going to give a few interesting examples of how education looks like when it meets WebRTC
  • Then talk about some of the challenges involved
  • You will have time to ask questions. I’ll answer them to the best of my ability
  • And then I am going to give you a bonus

The examples

The examples part of the webinar is probably going to be the most interesting one.

I remember talking almost 3 years ago with a startup in India about their use case. It was related to education and it blew my mind. It was so starkly different than what I assumed a startup in India would do within their local market for education that I saw it as my own private lesson. Since then, I talked with tens of vendors in this space. Each doing his own thing. Each focusing on solving a problem in tutoring. They are so wide in variety that you can’t even look at them as a single market.

But this is exactly what we will try to do here. I am going to categorize them a bit – I wonder where you will find yourself in that categorization.

The challenges

Learning has its challenges for the student, the teacher and now also for the platform.

My intent is to look at the challenges of the platform – what are the things necessary to put these different education systems in production and how to make sure they work properly.

For the various types of education platforms, I’ll give you tips for where you should focus with your testing – what are the weak spots to look for – so you can find and deal with them before your customers do.

The bonus

I am not going to say what the bonus is now – it will ruin the surprise. I will say though, that this is something you’ll find immediately useful.

The bonus will be available only to those who will be with me during the webinar itself, so register now and save your place.

What’s next?

Register of course!

And feel free to write down your questions in advance – Crowdcast allows for that.

Interesting in WebRTC e-learning integration with “Moodle” learning platform.

    You and me both 🙂

    Only thing I know for Moodle is a plugin experiment built some 2 years ago, so probably broken.

    The webinar will focus more on the learning scenarios and environment than a specific platform – would love to see you there!
