At an event on campus tomorrow, CSU’s College of Business will announce the addition of a unique, state-of-the-art technology that creates a blended classroom connecting on-campus and online students in real time, a first for a U.S. business school. The new experience, powered by cutting-edge technology from mashme.io, offers live connectivity and collaboration of online learners with faculty and students in the classroom.
March 29 at CSU’s College of Business, Rockwell West Main Lobby (all guests will check in before proceeding to the room). Please check in by 2:45 p.m. A live demonstration and Q & A will be held from 3 – 4 p.m. All guests must be in the room no later than 3 p.m.
An introduction and unveiling of the classroom will be provided by CSU College of Business Dean Beth Walker and a live demonstration of Mosaic will be presented by Victor Sanchez, CEO of mashme.io. A reception and student experience area will follow from 4 – 6 p.m.
The college branded the new online experience “Mosaic” to reflect the platform’s 27 tiled screens and the ability for students from all backgrounds to bring unique perspectives forward and collaborate on business projects and coursework.
Mosaic mirrors a live classroom by creating an immersive learning experience for both online and on-campus students. During lectures, Mosaic enables simultaneous interactions through polls, group discussions and engagement tools for up to 88 remote students. Mosaic is a new online learning option to supplement the College of Business’s well-known lecture-capture experience for its Online MBA. The new Mosaic experience also makes CSU’s College of Business the only U.S. business school to have three learning options in one classroom.
