Barco is helping institutions of higher learning evolve from teacher-centric classrooms into rich, interactive learning spaces with its brand new Collaborative Learning Platform: a wireless networked solution that empowers students to participate more dynamically in both classrooms and via remote locations using their own devices (BYOD).
The new Collaborative Learning Platform delivers the connectivity, information exchange and interactivity options to enable academic institutions to tailor their educational approach to generations of students who have grown up with mobile technology.
Fuelling innovative learning environments
The modular set-up of Barco’s Collaborative Learning Platform makes it ideal for any educational setting, either a single classroom, a campus-wide platform, or a multi-site learning environment. The platform can be used to boost the level of collaboration in traditional classrooms, virtually “merge” local and remote classrooms into a single collaborative learning space, facilitate student workgroup pods, and drive completely virtual, worldwide classrooms. Students can interact with the teacher using their tablets or smartphones, the teacher can issue a poll or a quiz to get feedback, remote students can pose a question by virtual hand-raising. The possibilities are virtually limitless.
