Six Amazing Reasons Why Video Conferencing Belongs in the Classroom

Technological advances in the realm of education have presented both students and educators alike with a slew of new ways to approach learning. You may have already heard of providers like Blue Jeans, who make it possible for today’s video conferencing equipment to be used in increasingly creative ways, resulting in innovations in the classroom and beyond.

According to Statista, 80 percent of teenagers reported that they expected to use mobile apps at work in 2015. With the use of such apps–including mobile video conferencing– in the workplace, it’s no small wonder that their popularity would begin to grow in schools as well. As the Huffington Post recently noted, the prominence of video conferencing apps on smartphones and other devices is making it easier, and almost commonplace, to connect with others all over the globe with merely a finger to your touchscreen, which, as a result, is changing the landscape of work and education. On a related note, The Telegraph recently reported on the rise of “digital nomads”, or employees who choose to work remotely in relaxing destinations via completely digital means.

With the rise of digital power in the workforce, it’s no small wonder that teenagers and students alike would be accustomed to–and expecting–the use of mobile technology at work and school. The benefits of this technology in the classroom, then, is truly a great exposure to how video conferencing can change the approach to education. Read on for six reasons why this spread of video conferencing can really make a whole new world of difference for both students and teachers alike in the classroom.  


1.  Virtual Guests, Presentations, and Trips

By far, one of the most amazing powers of video conferencing is the ability to connect with anyone at any time, all over the world. With this ability, the creative possibilities you may experience in the classroom are endless. You can have a guest lecturer from another country, a virtual field trip through a foreign landmark or an expedition through a rainforest, or just connect with other students across the globe. By seeking out the myriad of opportunities to connect with other educational institutions, educators, and social and cultural institutions around the world, lectures and classes can be supplemented in ways you may have never thought possible.


2. Recordable Lessons

Another handy benefit of video conferencing is that you can record lessons for later access. Students can access the lessons again at any time, and thanks to the power of cloud computing, they can also access supplemental handouts and readings that are made available, even on their mobile devices.  


3. A Greater Course Selection

The use of video conferencing in the classroom allows the broadcasting of classes so that they are accessible online to remote students. Additionally, classes may be available at other facilities and schools, and video conferencing makes it easy to access additional classes as part of an extended or supplemental curriculum.   


4. Virtual Office Hours

Video conferencing allows greater opportunity for teacher-student interaction, even if in-person office hours aren’t on the schedule. Hosting virtual office hours allows you to meet at any time, and also promotes greater communication between student and teacher. As a teacher, it’s important to be available to your students, and having a more personal connection as opposed to email or phone can help facilitate a greater engagement in learning. As a student, it’s comforting and supportive to know that your teacher is invested in you and thus available to you when they may have been previously unreachable. 


5. Encourage Collaboration Between Students near and Far

By connecting with other educational institutions, you’ll find it’s possible for students in remote locations to collaborate with one another. In keeping with some of the benefits mentioned in point number one, collaboration across countries and time zones allows students to experience a whole new way of learning, as well as an exposure to new cultures and lines of thought. You can imagine how exciting it must be to connect with another classroom across the globe in order to learn a new language, take a guided tour of a cultural institution, or follow a current event in real time.


6. Hold a Class Online

Gone are the days when classes need to be missed just because you are sick– whether you’re the teacher or the student, there’s still a way for you to effectively connect. Teachers can also offer classes for institutions abroad, so that foreign students can dial in to your class and participate.

These are just a few of the benefits you may encounter in the classroom when video conferencing is involved. Many of these advantages were previously unfathomable, and as technology continues to evolve and educators get more and more creative, it’s likely that you’ll start seeing even more uses for video conferencing and other methods of digital education. Embracing the power of technology has truly opened up a whole new world of experience for students and teachers alike, and it’s likely that the future will only hold more and more of these unique features and benefits. By keeping abreast of advances in the realm of video conferencing, you’re sure to see even more amazing new things on the horizon.

Think ROMA for USB-C and USB 3.1 dual-connector flash drive

usb1With USB-C and USB 3.1, ROMA combines two of the latest high-speed connectors in one flash drive, encased in a highly robust and elegant gold or space grey aluminium body. This way, up to 64 GB of data can be easily shared between the latest MacBook and other devices.

Following its award-winning Lightning and USB 3.0 flash drive iKlips for iOS devices, Adam Elements now presents a new dual connector storage innovation for MacBook. ROMA comes with both a USB-C connector and a standard USB 3.1 plug, which can be easily swivelled around. This way, users can easily store up to 64 GB of data from e.g. the latest USB-C-only MacBook models. The files can then be shared with other USB-C devices, including the latest Chromebook Pixel, other new notebooks or even selected smartphone models. But also data sharing with older USB compatible computers is possible, thanks to the standard USB 3.1 connector.

USB-C for the latest MacBook, USB 3.1 for a variety of USB devices:

On both ends, ROMA boasts high-end transfer speeds of up to 130 MB/s.

Brilliant 4K UHD display now in 23.8 inch size

acMMD, the leading technology company and brand license partner for Philips Monitors, announces a new display with brilliant 4K UHD resolution. At 23.8 inches, the 241P6VPJKEB display completes the UltraClear 4K UHD line-up with a new, smaller model. This latest member of the family still packs the same dazzling performance as its larger siblings, with UltraClear 4K UHD, 1.074 billion colours, 99% SRGB colour standard, plus integrated webcam and microphone.

Sharpest, most brilliant picture ever
Despite its modest dimensions, the new monitor brings a real sense of space to users’ desktops owing to the sharpness and clarity of the 4K resolution. UHD delivers four times the resolution of Full HD, with 3,840 x 2,160 pixels – for detail like never before. This is extra screen space that people can enjoy however they like (such as with videos or gaming after hours), or use to be more productive at work. Finance wizards, for instance, can view more rows and columns of their spreadsheets without losing the sense of clarity or fatiguing their eyes; creatives working on high-res content can see more detail per inch of screen, and can zoom in for detail or scroll out for an overview perspective, even have four designs side-by-side for comparison and still maintain the vital detail; and geophysicists viewing scientific images can investigate finest details with greater precision than ever.

Albert Ulfman, Product Manager Philips monitors EMEA at MMD says, “The new Philips 241P6VPJKEB is one of the first 23.8-inch 4K monitors to arrive on the market. It offers amazing viewing clarity for every content, and is an excellent fit for the resolution-scaling capabilities of Windows 10. It’s part of the commitment of MMD to giving users a more enjoyable and productive viewing experience with the equipment on their desks.”

Colours and panel technology with performance to match
With 4K UHD technology under the hood, the other components in the display have some tough performance standards to live up to. But like the other 4K UHD displays in the portfolio, the latest family member is engineered to unleash the power of the 4K UHD viewing experience. Take colour, for example: this 10-bit display delivers rich colour depth with 1.074 billion colours for smooth, natural reproduction without gradations and banding effects. And with over 99% sRGB support, users can be confident that any and all of the one billion colours they see on the display are vivid and true to life, and that colours remain precisely the same across different applications. The technology of the panels themselves also measures up: the expansive, wide-angle view and super-high contrast abilities of advanced AH-IPS perfectly complement the sense of space of 4K UHD. AH-IPS is also ideal for applications demanding colour accuracy and high brightness at all times, like photo retouching and graphic design.

Connectivity features that matter
Apart from the power of 4K UHD, the new display is designed with features that matter to users in today’s ultra-connected and always-on world. The display supports MultiView, so people can connect and view images from two separate sources – a PC and TV feed, for example – at the same time. With MHL technology on board, users can enjoy mobile content from smartphones or other devices on the big screen, or use the USB 3.0 hub to hook up devices and recharge them fast. There’s also an integrated webcam and microphone to connect and collaborate more effectively.

The new Philips 241P6VPJKEB/00 display, with an MSRP of £369, will be available from November 2015.

AOC launches 23.6″ display with 4K resolution

aocDisplay specialist AOC presents a new high-end monitor that brings 4K into a more compact format to fit on any desk at home or in offices. The AOC U2477PWQ’s space-saving 23.6″ (59.9 cm) 4K display provides the user with an impressive UHD resolution of 3840 x 2160 pixels. Its PLS panel delivers the best colour uniformity at any viewing angle and exploits 100 % of the sRGB colour gamut. Ultra-fast HDMI 2.0 ensures a bandwidth up to 18 Gb/s, which allows a fluid playback of 4K videos, e.g. when connected to a 4K Blu-ray player, 4K camcorder or 4K gaming. The monitor comes in a premium timeless design: With its textured and transparent base, the monitor is an eye-catching companion for professional work and ambitious home users.  


Impressive 4K resolution in a practical size
Many users have become accustomed to displays with high pixel densities, for example on their smartphones, so they do not want to forego this image quality on their monitor screens, too. However, most 4K displays pack the imposing 4K resolution of 3840 x 2160 pixels into large monitor sizes which do not necessarily fit into smaller offices. The new AOC U2477PWQ offers a compact solution for everyone: With its display size of 23.6″ the monitor is an ideal option for users who look for a 4K solution but do not have a big office or desk. What is more, with the new Windows 10 operating system, detecting and setting up 4K resolutions has become far more intuitive, making the use of 4K much easier with monitors of all sizes and formats. The combination of a 4K resolution with a compact screen size entails an extra high pixel density, which leads to ultra-sharp images and a crystal clear reproduction of photos and 4K videos. Users do not have to scroll or down scale their images anymore to see the whole picture and at the same time enjoy the smallest details.

Professional panel power
The PLS panel delivers a vivid as well as very precise colour reproduction and comes with wide viewing angles of 178°/178° – horizontal and vertical. PLS panels have an extremely good colour uniformity at any viewing angle. The 8-bit colour support and sRGB colour gamut rounds off the high performance of this display. This way, the U2477PWQ offers the user vibrant pictures, making it ideal for professional users like graphic designers, photographers and movie makers who prefer a smaller display size. Also, ambitious home users find a convincing solution for private photo and video editing. And even if those tasks require long-time work, the display offers a helpful technology to prevent the user from eye fatigue: Flicker FREE helps to reduce imperceptible, but eye-affecting flickering.

Timeless design, fully equipped
The stylish design of the monitor makes it a true eye-catcher in every workplace. With its textured finish and transparent stand, the display combines timelessness and modern understatement. Various ergonomic options complete the performance: Users can adjust the height, and use the tilt or pivot function to find the ideal setting for a healthy posture. And the monitor is very well equipped with advanced connectors, too. In addition to the ultra-fast HDMI 2.0 input that increases the bandwidth significantly up to 18 Gb/s and allows for 60 fps 4K video playback MHL 3.0 and DisplayPort 1.2 are also on board. MHL allows users to display content from a smartphone or tablet while charging it at the same time.

The AOC U2477PWQ will be available in November 2015. The MSRP will be £289. As with all of its displays, AOC offers a 3-year warranty with on-site exchange service.

AuraVisor Kickstarter Campaign Reached Goal

auravisorMemo to Facebook, you bought the wrong company. AuraVisor has officially just become the first true Virtual Reality game changer in the industry. James Talbot. CEO, AuraVisor, wants the industry to know that his AuraVisor is definitely the most cutting edge product. It’s the first virtual reality system that doesn’t need to be connected to a computer or smartphone.  Its on-board computer allows you to break free from other devices and experience the ultimate in virtual reality.

Talbot is still in shock over Oculus Rift’s Founder Palmer Lucky’s recent tweets that were circulated over the major tech sites that the industry is not ready for the mass market until VR can get rid of the $1,000 high-end PCs that are connected to the headsets via wires. 

Talbot said, “We beg to differ and that is the essence of our Kickstarter campaign. AuraVisor has everything you need embedded in the headset now to experience VR without the need for a separate computer, connected by wires or even a smartphone.”

AuraVisor is a virtual reality head mounted computer (HMC) that works without a computer or smartphone, free from the clutter of wires and the hassle of interchanging a smart phone. AuraVisor has an on-board Android based operating system that allows you to experience the immersion of virtual reality, and all it offers, without breaking the budget.

The built in 5″ screen delivers full 1080 HD video and a wide 100° field of vision means that the AuraVisor provides a truly immersive gaming experience but, more than that, it’s a completely standalone entertainment system. AuraVisor fully supports 3D movies.  Imagine watching the latest action films in full 3D on the equivalent of a 100 foot screen.

AuraVisor has powerful on-board WiFi and a simple smart scrolling graphical user interface. Simply turn on, download and immerse yourself in whatever activity you like.

Users have the ability to download more content, including games, videos and apps from the VR store. The VR store is based on, and linked to, the Google Play Store. With support for popular video apps such as Netflix, Hulu and YouTube, and gaming engines such as Unity and Unreal Engine. AuraVisor supports almost every entertainment and gaming option a user would need.  A HDMI input allows users to connect a computer or gaming system for even more content. AuraVisor includes 16 GB of on board memory, with an expandable microSD slot, users can add their own content and provide additional storage space for apps. 

AuraVisor features a built-in Lithium Ion battery which provides more than five hours of power.  With included Bluetooth gaming controller, microUSB charging cable, Bluetooth 4.0, HDMI 2.0 input and support for 4K UHD video at 60fps, AuraVisor will immerse users into the latest and greatest content available today, at a price that everyone can afford.

Currently available as part of our Kickstarter launch are options such as additional adult and children-sized faceplates and a Power Bank Battery, designed specifically for AuraVisor allowing additional gaming and entertainment time.  Other features and options will be announced soon. 

With over 600 backers, the AuraVisor Kickstarter campaign has already smashed its £100,000 funding goal in little over a week.  For more information on the Kickstarter campaign, please visit AuraVisor Kickstarter Campaign
