Wharton Connects Students and Faculty Outside of the Classroom


Higher education institutions have attempted for years to connect students and faculty outside of the classroom and create extended learning experiences. However, these groups are often dispersed and unable to collaborate on face-to-face for activities like study groups and office hours.

The Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania, one of the premier institutions for business education, has pioneered several cutting-edge initiatives to overcome these distance learning challenges.  One of these involved working with Internet2 and Blue Jeans Network to pilot a cloud-based video conferencing service specifically designed for the higher education community.
