Solutions to engage all studentsCase Studies: Education

The education technology sector continues to perform strongly for the pro-AV industry, and the growth in remote learning is an important driver of new investment.

Established tools such as interactive displays, document cameras and PTZ/web cameras remain in high demand in the world of education technology, while devices that enable hybrid learning, such as collaborative tools, UC systems and audio solutions, are also driving investment. Bringing all of these together in an intuitive solution that provides the same experience for learners no matter their location is the aim for many institutions.

Queen’s University Belfast recently undertook a comprehensive project with Pure AV to enable the capture of the entire classroom teaching and learning experience, allowing real-time participation and seamless bidirectional engagement between lecturers, in-class students and remote students. This includes a complete integration of traditional AV content sources, physical whiteboards and demonstration areas with lecture capture and collaboration platforms.

The user interface is delivered primarily over Microsoft Teams, and the setup ensures that the traditional, familiar tools of the lecture theatre – whiteboards, visualisers and presentation slides – are captured and remain a fully accessible part of the teaching experience, however collaborative the class may be. In addition, the system can capture and live stream interactions between lecturer and audience, including audience voice and video, with automated camera tracking a key feature.

Newbuilds represent a great opportunity to design a holistic AV solution tailored entirely to the needs of teachers and learners. Harper Adams and Keele Universities have joined forces to create a new centre of excellence for veterinary training. A key priority was to ensure that undergraduates access the same high-quality learning experience regardless of their location, with a seamless digital join between the two campuses.

In Shropshire, UK, the Harper Adams site includes two lecture theatres, which provide real-time streaming of video, audio and data from campus to campus. The link with Keele is managed via a Poly Group 700 videoconferencing system and two Panasonic PTZ cameras were selected to mirror the facilities already in place at Keele.

The AV system is consistent across the four main seminar rooms at Harper Adams. Breakout screens enable students to work in small groups and share outcomes digitally with the broader group. There is the choice to connect devices via HDMI or wirelessly using the Airtame system. The use of Wyrestorm AV over IP enables the flexible distribution of content between rooms.

At ISE 2022, the Unified Communications and Education Technology Zone in Hall 2 will host the very latest in education technology solutions. Technology for the education sector will also be present throughout the show from exhibitors that serve the sector alongside other vertical markets.

ISE 2022 will also see the launch of the Digital Learning Summit. Be part of the transformation and support the learning community by booking onto the Digital Learning Summit here.
