Solution Provided

AVT Solutions installed and maintains audio visual systems, as well as a video enabled distance learning system for Educor nationally. This includes a broadcast centre in Durban, which utilizes an interactive whiteboard (IWB) connected to a video conferencing and recording system. This allows a lecturer to conduct a lesson and broadcast it in real-time to remote classrooms, enhancing interactivity and access to quality tertiary education. Students can ask the lecturer questions in real-time over the video conferencing system, allowing for a true distance learning experience. Lectures are recorded for both sharing and storage.

Each remote site was equipped with two displays. This configuration allows students to view the lecturer together with notes made on the IWB simultaneously. These notes are recorded, and can then be sent out to attendees for future reference.
