Madison-based Sonic Foundry has taken its video streaming services to a new market through a college hub in the Bahamas that combines online classes with in-person student support.

The company’s Global Learning Exchange opened Saturday in Nassau in partnership with the Bahamas Institute of Business and Technology.

Equipped with video screens and other technology to support online classes, it’s also a place where students can meet to work on projects, interact with college staff and help each other with studies.

Some of the first classes will be from Hilbert College in upstate New York where Michael Brophy, former dean of the University of Wisconsin-Baraboo campus is now president.

“We’re ready to enroll students this fall,” Brophy said about the Nassau site.
