London Business School Selects eLearning Software from Centra
After evaluating serveral eLearning vendors, London Business School chose to use Centra’s ASP to enhance traditional physical classroom teaching with live, interactive online sessions delivered directly to participants’ home or office PCs.
According to Ian Hardie, Associate Dean of Executive Education of London Business School, “We were looking for an innovative way to expand the global reach and impact of our executive education programmes. This means that they must extend beyond the walls of the physical classroom.” Currently, London Business School Executive Education works with over 60 leading international companies, 75% of which are headquartered outside of the UK. Using Centra, participants from corporations worldwide can participate in Executive Education courses online, in real time, without the typical time and expense considerations associated with physical classroom delivery.
“We are pleased that after an exhaustive evaluation of live eLearning offerings, Centra came out on top,” said Lawrence Whittle, Vice President of Sales Operations for Centra in Europe, the Middle East and Africa. “We will work hand-in-hand with London Business School to ensure the success of these innovative executive programmes.”

The applications – including interactive Web meetings, virtual classrooms, and large-scale conferences – ensure universal access through firewalls and proxy servers, and deliver full-performance IP audio conferencing, streaming video, application sharing, and dynamic multimedia over low-bandwidth network connections through a standard browser interface.
