Pexip, a leading innovator in scalable, distributed videoconferencing software, will showcase their Scientia Syllabus Plus integration through Eveoh’s MyTimetable at the THETA 2015 conference. Held at the Gold Coast Convention and Exhibition Centre in Broadbeach, Australia from 11 - 13 May, THETA is one of the market’s largest higher education events centered on promoting the technology partners and innovations that are transforming today’s classroom experience.

Entirely software-based, Infinity allows education institutions to deliver virtual meeting rooms and auditoriums for video, voice, and data collaboration. It enables students, lecturers, faculty staff and any other participant to simply collaborate or take part in distance learning education from any device and location. Thanks to its ease of use, scalability, interoperability, and cost effectiveness, Pexip Infinity continues to be the preferred choice for institutions across the globe, some of which includes Australia’s own Charles Sturt University, and Indiana University and the Texas Education Telecommunications Network in the USA.

Universities can easily make the most of their current videoconferencing and unified communications infrastructures as Infinity can deliver both staff collaboration and scalable distance learning abilities across already existing systems and devices, no additional equipment needed. Infinity closely integrates with MyTimetable, Eveoh’s leading personal timetabling application that delivers individual timetables to more than 400,000 students’ digital devices world wide. Pexip and Eveoh’s collaboration will be highlighted at THETA 2015 for its ability to simplify distance learning planning for all users - including students, lecturers, planners, and management - leading to increased engagement and performance for both learners and staff.

“The number of educational institutions relying on the simplicity of our Infinity platform to fulfill their distance learning and videoconferencing requirements continues to grow,” said Simen Teigre, Pexip CEO and co-founder. “Simple to deploy, manage, integrate and use, Infinity provides institutions with a solution that not only lets lecturers and students easily connect, collaborate, and share information from any type of endpoint, client, or device, but also fuels institutions’ desires to provide more and better competitive distance learning programs, and more personalized content. We look forward to showcasing the power and simplicity of our product at THETA.”

Australia’s Charles Sturt University (CSU) recently selected the Pexip Infinity meeting platform to power the institution’s world-class distance education program. With more than 20,000 students enrolled in undergraduate, postgraduate, or single subjects, almost 60 percent of CSU students are now fully engaged online - making the web-based program one of the largest in the region. As a result, CSU has become a leader in the provision of intuitive online learning where students and lecturers meet via video enabled services in order to participate in classroom discussions, share knowledge, or collaborate in teams within an easy-to-use virtual environment.

The biennial THETA is the key technological event in higher education, attracting practitioners and senior decision makers from a broad spectrum of information technology, research, teaching and learning, library, and knowledge management areas across Australia and New Zealand.
