In admitting Polycom’s Russ Colbert to its Hall of Fame, the Federal Government Distance Learning Association recognized Colbert’s long and distinguished career in support of distance learning. A former U.S. Navy Surface Warfare officer, Colbert established and managed the Navy’s Electronic Schoolhouse Network, and oversaw an expansion of video teleconference-based distance learning from five to 22 locations. Colbert also established the first successful shore-to-ship video training connection and course of instruction in naval history. He went on to assist dozens of government agencies at all levels in various capacities as a consultant and distance education manager.
“What an honor it is for Polycom to work with such distinguished pioneers of distance learning in the federal government,” said Colbert. “These individuals and organizations serve to protect, preserve, and enhance the American way of life, and we’re proud to play a part in the important work they do.”
