Due of the constraints on on-site presence, many schools and colleges do not intend to entirely revert to in-person teaching. With travel limitations making it even more difficult for overseas students to return to school, schools and educators are looking for ways to ensure that education continues uninterrupted through hybrid learning, which blends in-class and distant learning.

A fresh approach to education

Although digital teaching is not a novel notion in education, no educational institution could have predicted the enormous demand and necessity for it in the aftermath of the pandemic. Universities have been using pre-recorded videos for years to allow students to learn asynchronously and remotely through online instruction. Teachers, on the other hand, found these tools difficult to use since pre-recorded course materials require time to film and edit, are inflexible, lack interactivity, and do not target different student levels.

Universities sought a solution that would provide better teaching and learning, realising the benefits of investing early in a hybrid learning system.

Creating a comprehensive hybrid learning environment

Many colleges have developed and deployed hybrid classrooms on campus to face this challenge head-on. The key is to give in-class and remote learners equal weight by fully integrating online teaching into the physical classroom, where teachers can use their existing teaching methods and interact with both remote and in-class students at the same time to bridge the gap between online and in-person learning.

Given that many teachers are unfamiliar with online teaching, an equally vital component is the provision of a simple and intuitive online teaching platform on which teachers may easily teach.

The elements that make up a hybrid classroom

A successful hybrid classroom is made up of a mix of hardware and software that melds the physical and digital worlds into a single educational environment.

The huge interactive touch panel embedded with digital white boarding software is at the heart of the hybrid classroom solution, allowing teachers to present, annotate, and collaborate on the display in real time in a form that is easily viewable by in-person and remote students. Both teachers and students will find the program simple to use, and it fully utilises the interactive capabilities of the display to assist improve student engagement. In conjunction with this,

A successful hybrid classroom is made up of a mix of hardware and software that works together to smoothly merge the physical and digital worlds into a single educational environment.

Two projectors are also put in the hybrid classroom, working in tandem with the interactive display to bring distant students, in-class students, and the teacher closer together by delivering real-time footage of each other during class. Both project images onto the classroom's back wall and are set up to show distant students on one screen while mirroring the whiteboard display on the other. This setup allows the teacher to bring the remote pupils into his or her physical area.
