Pivot 2.0: Butts in Seats

During 2021 many higher ed classrooms were outfitted with cameras, microphones, speakers, and recording solutions for hybrid teaching and learning. Today, it’s all butts in seats. 

There’s a silver lining. Today those solutions are being used for pedagogies that enable students to watch recorded lectures to help them study. Automated PTZ cameras and wireless microphone technologies have made it easier for instructors to use and for AV/IT to manage. 

This panel discusses classroom UC&C technologies that help facilitate today’s higher ed classroom teaching and learning. The active learning classroom is back.

Everything But the Higher Ed Classroom

Some colleges and universities have a larger footprint than many corporate enterprises but have unique needs for unified communications and collaboration. 

Offices and meeting spaces for administration and instructors must be equipped for collaboration across campus and accommodating hybrid workers. Public spaces are often used for ad hoc lessons and study with engaging video walls, and wayfinding has become a staple on many campuses.  

The most critical UC system links virtually every communications device, speaker, endpoint, display, and mobile device for emergency alerts throughout every space within the campus.

This panel discusses challenges and solutions for creating unified communications and collaboration across campus.
