Indian Institute of Management Indore (IIMI) is one of the distinguished elite B-schools in India. It is known for divulging top-notch management education and training amongst its students, and best known for teaching, research and industry interaction. As an initiative to connect researchers across the world, from the last six years, IIMI has been organising conferences on Excellence in Research and Education. These conferences provide academicians, doctoral students and research aspirants a platform to present their research paper and an opportunity to interact with the industry, research and education experts.
This year, the institute partnered with WizIQ, an online education platform, to live webcast the Technical Track 1 of the 6th International Conference on Excellence in Research and Education 2014 (CERE’ 2014). The conference was held on 8th-11th May 2014.
Webcasting is generally understood as the live video streaming of physical events all over the world via internet. With events like these where real-time collaboration is necessary, mere video streaming is not the perfect solution where the shared research cannot be visible in-sync for the online audience.
WizIQ’s Virtual Classroom comes as rescue in these scenarios, where the audio-video of the presenters is broadcasted live along with their presentations. Audiences do not just see the presenterbut also the content shared by the presenter, in real-time, from anywhere across the globe.
In the conference, the research papers were invited from almost all the avenues of knowledge, such as: Economics, Operation Management, Information System, Human Resource, Corporate Governance, Social Issues, Business Communication, etc
WizIQ made it possible for renowned researchers and academicians like Dr.SushilaSoriya, Dr. S.P. Rath, Dr. Mark. A. Sunderman, Dr.EvgenyRadetsky, Dr. Ronald W. Spahr and many other influential professors from across the world to share their knowledge and experience with their respective papers with the audience.
In his own words, Prof RanjeetNambudiri, the Chairperson of Fellow Programme in Management, IIM Indore, said, “We appreciate and recommend the efforts made by the team WizIQ as Online Education Partner for the conference.”
This successful endeavour opened new doors. The institute decided to offer selected research papers to a wider audience for ongoing debate and continuous learning as a MOOC on WizIQ. With the consent of the presenters/authors, IIMI gained the indemnifications of copyrights of their papers to create the MOOC. Thus, the research papers presented in the MOOC are the original papers presented in the CERE’ 2014.
The MOOC is again an open and free online course for anyone to attend. Anyone can join the MOOC by going to the following ULR link: http://go.wiziq.com/2ssk
On the whole, WizIQ is a one-stop destination for venue-based conferences, entirely online or hybrid conferences. As one of the leading and award winning online learning and teaching platforms, WizIQ also offers the best experience of attending seminars and conferences from home, office or anywhere.
