Virtual universities have their professors, guest lecturers, and world-wide student

population in the same classroom, from anywhere in the world…at any time.

Within minutes, locations become real: The team’s project room, the professor’s

office & classroom, the executive’s boardroom, the AEC BIM room for overseeing

the construction of a new office park…

The Terf ® virtual campus removes the distance of geographically distributed teams

and organizations, bringing people together with their content in a single location,

keeping them engaged, accessible & productive.

Terf ® eliminates the downside of a distributed population, removes the anonymity of

teleconferences + desktop sharing tools, and redefines what it means to be co-located.


Thank You!
