Teaching Wall - from Ajenta

With many communication platforms, conversations just don’t flow when more than a few people are on the call. The audio algorithms, purposely designed to cut out background noise and suppress echo, inhibit conversation where people in the same space would talk over each other in a completely natural way; the way you start to answer a question before the final word of the question has been asked, or as you agree and reinforce what someone else is saying. The Vscene service incorporates an audio algorithm that better enables conversations to flow, helping to create an immersive, in-person feeling for those not physically present. Creating an equity of experience, so that remote students feel more like their connecting through the screen rather than just looking at one, promotes full participation and engagement, which both lead to better learning outcomes for your students. Any negative impact on wellbeing reduces student participation, and utilising a platform that promotes inclusivity and trust for remote students will, by its very nature, reduce any reluctance to engage digitally, thereby reducing any anxiety and developing students confidence. For those students joining knowledge- based employers after graduating, where hybrid working with video meetings will be expected, remote and hybrid learning will provide them with key employability skills.
Ajenta’s Teaching Wall is a comparatively inexpensive solution for remote and hybrid teaching that brings remote students into the learning space with all the nuances and body language of being-there that tutors can quickly pick up on. Teaching Wall can be configured in many different ways, and auto-scheduling means there are no buttons to press to turn systems on or connect with learners. When its time for class, simply start teaching…….

The Hybrid Classroom - Teaching Mode

Based on Ajenta’s Classroom Dual hardware and configuration, this is a cost effective hybrid teaching solution that doesn’t require teachers to learn a new technology. All the teacher needs to do is select ‘TEACH’ or ‘LEARN’ mode on a simple push-button control pad so that the correct camera is selected. In TEACH mode, the remote participants appear on the screens behind the in-room students, and the camera on the rear wall automatically tracks the teacher. Interactive screens, visualisers, digital microscopes, etc., can be input into the configuration so that remote students can clearly see the content. A single raid array microphone will pick up the whole classroom. This eliminates the need for the teacher to wear a lapel microphone, and also ensures that any student questions or contributions in the room are fully audible to remote students.

The Hybrid Classroom - Learn Mode

In LEARN mode, in-class and remote students can see and hear a remote based teacher, and that teacher will enjoy a view of all the students from the front wall camera. This is an ideal configuration for incorporating remote speakers - maybe a subject specialist or an industry partner - and for teaching to two or more sets of students on different campuses. For collaboration between different HE and FE partners in Institutes of Technology [IoT] or for multi academy trusts [MATs] to reach more distributed students, the Hybrid Classroom is becoming an indispensable learning environment.
