Polycom And Educational Commission Of Beijing Xicheng District Officially Initiate Distance Learning, Video Collaboration Program In Primary Schools

Stocks in this article: PLCM

Polycom, Inc. (Nasdaq: PLCM), the global leader in open standards-based unified communications and collaboration (UC&C), and the Educational Commission of Beijing’s Xicheng District, held an opening ceremony in Beijing last Friday to officially launch a distance learning education program for Beijing’s Xicheng District. Themed “Educational Vision Starts Your Journey to the Future,” the event highlighted Beijing’s first distance learning program for primary education, focused on remote face-to-face learning and international exchanges. Tian Jingsheng, Director of the Educational Commission of Xicheng District, an official of Xicheng District, and Steven Li, General Manager of Greater China at Polycom, presented at the ceremony and jointly witnessed the historic moment.

China has gradually increased its investment in education over the past years, and the sharing of high-quality educational resources is a priority for the next phase of education development. Polycom’s video collaboration solutions enable distance learning, allowing the Educational Commission of Beijing Xicheng District to meet this critical educational need. The Phase I Project for the Educational Commission of Beijing Xicheng District is enabling 260 schools in the district to carry out distance learning education (via HD video conferencing), significantly boosting the integration of educational resources in the district, as well as promoting cross-district, cross-regional and global educational exchanges.

At the ceremony, principals of The Experimental High School Attached To Beijing Normal University, Yuxiang Primary School in Beijing, and officials from the Grampians Education Board, Victoria, Australia, participated in a live face-to-face conversation via Polycom videoconferencing solutions, expressing their strong desire to cooperate in international remote educational exchanges. The event also included a 20-minute video class of mathematics with students at Beijing Fendou Primary School, Huguosi Primary School in Beijing, Shenjiaying Primary School of Yanqing in the suburbs of Beijing, and No.25 Primary School of Haikou City in South China of Hainan Province. This video class demonstrated the benefits of the cross-school, cross-district and cross-provincial educational resources sharing that will be implemented throughout Beijing’s Xicheng District.
