The VCU School of Medicine uses video-enabled, interactive classrooms to reach students far away or nearby. Professors can share a live session, collect screen captures of annotations in real time or record an entire class for use in the future. Students sit in pods with individual screens and microphones to ensure a two-way learning experience.
Innovation Centers in education bring new opportunities for direct engagement with the public for real world experience. Developing a technology-rich environment for students, professors, professionals and investors to come together and generate new business opportunities is a win-win for higher ed.
Instructors agreed that attendance was higher in their classes and that their students were more engaged and more willing to talk in class. The students also got to know one another better and didn’t seem to mind participating in group projects as much.
