Washington State School for the Blind provides educational services to more than 1,400 blind and visually impaired students from birth to 21 years. WSSB is nationally accredited by the Northwest Association of Accredited Schools (NAAS) and serves as a statewide demonstration and resource center, providing direct and indirect services to students both on campus and in the students’ local communities. By deploying the Logitech B910 Webcam and the BCC950 ConferenceCam throughout the organization, WSSB has enhanced the delivery of educational services, improved productivity and reduced travel time and costs.
"We installed the Logitech B910 HD Webcam because it is certified for Microsoft Lync, provides excellent image and sound quality, and is easy to use."
Education Network Support, WSSB
WSSB was faced with the challenge of connecting experienced educators with visually impaired students, regardless of their location. Gaining access to qualified teachers trained in Braille is limited--particularly in the highly specialized areas of mathematics and science. Traditional video conferencing systems couldn’t meet the school’s needs for highly interactive learning. After WSSB selected Microsoft Lync, it went looking to deploy web conferencing tools to enhance the Lync experience.
WSSB installed Microsoft Lync combined with Logitech B910 HD Webcams and Logitech USB H390 Headsets to create an interactive unified communications solution with instant messaging (IM), video conferencing, desktop sharing, file transfers, and whiteboard capabilities to meet the demands of a distance learning program.
With Logitech UC products optimized for simple integration and ease-of-use with Microsoft Lync, WSSB now attracts certified instructors regardless of location to provide educational services to remote students. Excellent high-definition video quality and audio capabilities provide the life-like experiences that are critical to students and teachers. The school can now deliver services to a greater number of students more efficiently and cost effectively. Lowering travel time and costs is working towards reducing WSSB’s environmental footprint.
