New Case: Nova Southeastern University
September 26, 2013 by Zoom

Remember being taken aside in elementary school and asked to say a few words to a speech therapist? Maybe you had regular meetings to correct a speech disorder? Well, if you’ve ever wondered who these specialists are and how they become speech-language experts, check out our newest case study: Fischler School of Education Replaces Distant Travels with Zoom.

This cases focuses on the Abraham S. Fischler School of Education at Nova Southeastern University, which has the largest speech-language pathology program in the US.

To make sure that clinical practicums meet accreditation standards, the program sent representatives out into the field to visit each student in his/her clinical placement at least three times during their program. This cost a lot of time and money for the school and representatives. The only solution to this was to employ help from a reliable, user-friendly video conferencing service.

Zoom’s simple, affordable solution is perfectly suited to their needs. Instead of wasting time traveling, specialists can work more efficiently by just launching a Zoom meeting on their computer or mobile device.

The school is also finding other ways to use Zoom, such as virtual office hours, recruiting and faculty training. “One of the beauties of Zoom is that it’s relatively simple, straightforward, easy to use, and ideal for meeting and training sessions with 25 or fewer people,” said Brian Croswhite, Executive Director of Innovation for the Fischler School of Education. “And we have only scratched the surface of what we can do with Zoom.”

We look forward to seeing the new uses the Fischler School finds for Zoom in the future.
