The education sector is undergoing major transformational changes. The learning community is demanding greater ease and access and the management is trying to provide them these while controlling costs.
Raising the performance standards of the student population
Staff technical skills prevents institutions from adopting new technologies
Traditional teaching methods limit the scope of learning for students
Teachers cannot offer proper guidance to students outside the physical classroom
PeopleLink video, audio, content sharing solutions address these challenges by empowering educators and learners to experience exceptional, high-impact learning.
An educational institution with multiple campuses faces challenges in keeping all of them connected. A simple and effective video conferencing solution empowers professors in different locations to collaborate via virtual meeting and simultaneously cut-out transit cost.
PeopleLink InstaVC provides just such a real-life setup that enables faculty to share ideas, exchange data, and ensure that the same standard of teaching is maintained across both campuses. Administrative staff can also use it to ensure university-wide standardization and control of processes and procedures.
Another challenge is to record class lectures for live or later distribution and remote viewing. This necessitates having in place hardware and software that can reliably and cleanly capture such information and stream it.
PeopleLink has the hardware and software to do this: specialty LT cameras high-end camera control systems, automated camera tracking system. PeopleLink InstaCast will automate lecture capture. It is a presenter-controlled camera system incorporating both monitor-based tracking and camera preset tracking.
Geographically dispersed campus mean that there needs to be a technology solution to enable distance-learning programs with reliable and intuitive online tools that will optimize interaction between students and teaching staff.
PeopleLink Acumen, a vLMS, and InstaCast, a webcasting software, are ideal solutions for enabling this process. It enables teaching staff to teach, hand out assignments, and support learners who in turn can access courses/assignments, online and interact with peers, and visualize knowledge.
PeopleLink solves the problem of bridging the gap between education and learners. The technologies applied transform the authentic brick and mortar classroom into a global learning platform. Students can learn directly from the experts on various subjects, ask questions and collaborate with peers without shifting base.
PeopleLink’s Acumen is a vLMS with a virtual collaborations platform that makes possible teaching-learning beyond geographical borders. Now, students can attend lectures from anywhere, access course materials at their convenience and work together with their ‘classmates’ who are geographically dispersed.
Recruitment is an elaborate process involving multiple rounds of interviews. Interviewees may be remotely located, even offshore, which necessitates the need for travel. This is the case with both new staff members and potential students. Therefore, what is needed is a technology solution that can manage this process remotely, efficiently, and cost-effectively.
PeopleLink InstaVC offers the ideal solution for such a situation. Our InstaVC video conferencing software in conjunction with our hardware can create a platform for conducting remote interviews. This solution eliminates the geographic constraint while also widening the options for recruiters to consider quality candidates wherever they are.
The importance of student counseling cannot be underestimated. The choice of the right course can complement the future career options of the student. The impactfulness of this process can be compromised by the fact that some students are remotely located.
PeopleLink offers solutions that enable remote counseling which can greatly help students and their parent to choose the right courses. Such video interactivity with a remote counselor can be made possible using PeopleLink’s hardware and InstaVC software.
