[prMac.com] Milan, Italy - Mirial announced today that Partners In Research has adopted the use of ClearSea, its new desktop video conferencing solution, as one of the solutions used to expand its Virtual Researcher On Call (VROC) program across Canada. The goal of VROC is to enhance student's experiences in the classroom through the adoption of cutting-edge technology.

"Moreover, we are glad to know that our product allows VROC to expand its services exhorting schools to use desktop video conferencing as a teaching tool".
