Forget the Regional Rail to Paoli. Students can now pursue their Villanova graduate degree by way of video conferencing. The university has announced that it will provide graduate classes to students at a technology park in the Navy Yard.
Starting in August, the operation will gives students access to a small 40-seat classroom and a bay of 10 teleconferencing workstations that will take advantage of the Yard’s data center, Philadelphia Technology Park, and its broadband capacity.
Villanova’s Dean of Engineering, Dr. Gary Gabriele says, in a press release:

“This partnership allows us to offer our students the opportunity to learn in a new world-class research, development and industrial setting. It also allows our faculty to develop new research relationships, and strengthen existing ones, which will yield new challenges in the classroom and new opportunities for student research.”

For the for-profit technology park, access to classes and additional training gives its colocation facilities — that is, the Park offers corporate clients office space — more skin in the game.
