Academic Tech Talks Offering Cranium Café Training on April 12

Cranium Café is a user-friendly, real-time, web-based meeting and collaboration platform that requires no download or installation. It is FERPA and ADA compliant and, unlike Skype, has been designed specifically for higher education.

If you are marked as “home,” students can “knock” on your electronic door to speak with you, exchange files, review information, receive advising and registration assistance or learn about BSU or your academic program and services, regardless of his or her location.
