Video Conferencing: Stepping in to Rescue Meetings Affected by Travel Bans
The recent travel bans imposed in the wake of the Coronavirus outbreak has affected millions of businesses around the Globe. The suspension of flights to and from China have thrown many businesses into making difficult decisions regarding whether or not to postpone overseas meetings for their employees. The economic cost continues to mount as businesses in and around Asia strive to better control the virus transmission.
Britain’s Department of Health and Social Care has declared the coronavirus outbreak a ‘serious and imminent threat’ to public health. The UK Government are also increasing its powers to keep people who may have the illness quarantined to prevent the spread of the virus across the UK. Companies worldwide and in virtually every sector have seen their business in China suffer, and now the virus is forcing companies to restrict corporate travel to mainland China.
Although parents and teachers feel the indirect pressures as a result of this ‘today’, it is the students who are likely to suffer in the long-term, who are at risk of experiencing a poorer level of teaching due to strict target-based curriculum’s, time-poor teachers and financially stretched schools.
With this in mind, it’s important to consider what options there are to help tackle this problem and still allow for our children and students to get the high level of education that we wish them to have. This is where Video Conferencing technology can help educators bring the outside world into the classroom and help inspire students and give them the opportunity to connect the environment from their desks. It is predicted that one of the most significant trends on the rise in education is video supported learning and therefore if you’re not already implementing it, you likely will be soon.
How Video Conferencing Can Save Money For Business
Video conferencing is increasingly popular among all types of businesses, from large to small startups. Video conferencing technology is an impressive business tool not only because it increases productivity and convenience, but because it also provides money-saving benefits.
The availability of fast, inexpensive broadband has done much to change the perception that only large companies have access to video conferencing. The simplicity of the technology means that using video conferencing doesn’t require a vital work conference to justify its usage; quick one-to-one conversations between coworkers can be held this way too.
