From broadcasting with minimal staff to remote classrooms, labs, and pop-up studios, online learning has expanded and changed. We will take a look at which of these solutions are still in use after the return to in-person learning. What are the challenges of virtual learning? How do you engage students? What can the AV/IT department learn from those who are providing education and what has worked?

Join this September Power Hour to learn how to:

  • Identify the key stakeholders and decision makers for online learning solutions, including staff, students, and administration.
  • Understand the issues for providing an equitable experience for all students whether in person or remote.
  • What are the challenges of remote learning and what role does AV/IT play? Are there any installation considerations.
  • Design solutions that address the pedagogy of the classroom.
