As part of our new series to recognize 9slides global customers and share the success stories and learnings amongst rest of the 9slides family, we recently interviewed Professor Theofilos Rosenberg from Athens University Of Medicine, Greece. We want to thank you Professor Theofilos for time he has taken out for this interview over email. Below are excerpts:
Professor Theofilos, tell us about your organization and department to our audience:

It is specially designed for medical doctors, nurses and other health professionals who are looking to improve their professional skills and knowledge and pursue a career in international public health bodies, relief or development aid agencies.

In addition, I am serving as the academic director of the aforementioned postgraduate program. There, apart from teaching, I am also leading a team of young researchers and professionals in providing innovative education to audiences around the country and the broader region.
What problem were you trying to solve with 9slides?
Having decided to offer education to students who are not physically present in the classroom we were looking for the appropriate technology to improve our distance learning services. We were seeking for a web-based solution for delivering convenient video lectures to our postgraduate students’ computers. Currently all of our courses offered online, feature video lectures that have been edited and published by 9slides.
How long have you been using 9slides for and how is your experience so far?
We have used 9slides for the last two years. From initial enquiry to the launch of our first online video-lecture, 9slides were very helpful and professional showing genuine interest in our needs. What’s most important for us is that out students like it and it has added a lot to the overall online learning experience they enjoy.
Would you recommend 9slides to our customers and why?
Definitely. From a user’s point of view I know that my team has been contented with using it when editing our video lectures. 9slides has been so far fast, stable and reliable. It has helped us building effective engagement with our students. We did a lot of enquiry before choosing it and we feel we made the right choice.
