Collaborative learning solutions

The context of education is changing. Today, students can be located anywhere – e.g. in a remote classroom or at home – so they need remote access to the school or training facility. However, engagement and collaboration possibilities remain essential. In order to deliver the on-campus experience to the remote students and teachers, Barco developed its Collaborative Learning Platform. It includes a range of connectivity, interactivity and information exchange tools, designed for students who have grown up with mobile technology, and provides teachers a new palette of tools with which to create their preferred teaching methods.

BYOD taken seriously

Barco’s Collaborative Learning Platform allows the users to enjoy the comfort of their own devices. Not only to share pixels on screens – but also to collaborate and interact. They can do this in traditional classrooms, active learning spaces – environments that allow groups of students to work together –, virtual classrooms and other rooms on the campus. For example, 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.

Ease of use is a cornerstone of the platform. Teachers want to focus on teaching, not on using the technology. The Barco Collaborative Learning Platform provides technology support for learning and teaching with the lowest learning curve for teachers and students alike. The teacher’s user interface is an example of making a lecture in an active learning room a simple experience.
