South Africa is one of the countries benefitting from Avaya helping educational institutions overcome the coronavirus crisis.
In a bid to help communities dealing with the outbreak, Avaya has made Avaya Spaces, a cloud-based collaboration app that enables virtual learning, available for free to schools, universities and non-profit organisations.
The move, part of the new #AvayaCares initiative, is offered as a solution to those affected by travel barriers being erected as governments work to stop the spread of the COVID-19 virus.
The free Avaya Spaces offer provides a cloud meeting and team collaboration solution that enables people and organisations to connect and collaborate remotely – and goes beyond integrating chat, voice, video, online meetings and content sharing. It gives users all the meeting and team collaboration features they need, including voice and video conferencing for up to 200 participants.
“I know there is an especially immediate need in the education sector as school and university administrators consider the safety of their students while ensuring continuity of their classes, engagement with their students and delivering on their educational objectives,” wrote Jim Chirico, President and CEO of Avaya, in a blog announcing the initiative.
“The Avaya team is passionate about being able to help those who are dealing with this epidemic, whether they are healthcare workers on the front lines or educational institutions, government organisations, business or individuals who are addressing this challenge. Working together, we feel this is one way we can help make a difference.”
