Technology for Learning and Communications

Examples of how FutureU has helped its clients at the intersection of people and technology:

The NASA Astrobiology Institute (NAI)...

...wanted its 500+ scientists to work together across great distances, but this wasn't happening as fast or as fully as NASA leaders had hoped, despite major investments in hardware and software. FutureU helped them find out why, then worked with them to adjust how they were doing things. Today, the number of scientists participating in NAI has doubled. Moreover, they now collaborate across distance every day, in multiple ways. Can FutureU take full credit for the Institute's growth and success? Certainly not, but we did help them install and ignite a booster rocket under this virtual community of scientists.

King Abdul-Aziz University (KAU) in Saudi Arabia...

...wanted to bring higher education to more Saudi students around the Kingdom and the world—but KAU's world-class professors weren't quite ready. At FutureU we customized our Faculty Development Program to a Saudi sensibility and delivered it to a cohort of two dozen doctorate-level professors from a dozen disciplines. The program gave them more than technical skills; it gave them the confidence, enthusiasm and inspiration they needed to build a popular distance learning program from the inside out.

Manutan International (distributors of business supplies, furniture, and technology)...

...wanted to improve teamwork and communications among its senior managers. With their annual retreat coming up, FutureU provided them with pre- and post-event surveys and facilitated online discussions, and a "wraparound" Event Portal that gave company leaders their first direct experience of how virtual collaboration and e-learning can enhance results.
