AACC Annual Convention
April 20, 2013 by Zoom

Zoom is exhibiting at the American Association of Community Colleges (AACC) 92nd Annual Convention at the Moscone Center in San Francisco. The convention is the premiere event for community college leaders, and the expo is a great opportunity for them to learn about services and products to bring innovation to their campuses. It was also an opportunity for us to learn more about the needs of community colleges.

We learned that many community colleges have students that work full or part time. Ideally, schools could offer more flexible options, such as learning online at their own pace, for these students. We also found that many community colleges are underfunded.  While we hear about lack of funding in four-year institutions, community colleges generally have even less money to allocate per student. Needless to say, most community colleges are unable to afford pricey room systems, so the Zoom education plan, which is affordable even for the smallest schools, was pretty popular!

It was also cool to see the offerings of other exhibitors. We were next to Steelcase, which had a set up of state-of-the-art classroom furniture – much nicer than what we remember from school!
