As hybrid learning continues to become a more prominent and popular form of education throughout the pandemic, Rochester Institute of Technology (RIT) Dubai recently determined that it needs an easy-to-use AV solution that would deliver the highest AV technologies to ensure remotely located students feel just as engaged as those sitting in the school’s classrooms.
Seeking a simple-to-use and reliable AV system, RIT Dubai turned to ClearOne (NASDAQ: CLRO), a global market leader enabling conferencing, collaboration, and network streaming solutions, for the solution that would meet its unique needs.
“It was imperative that all of our students, regardless of their location, could clearly see and hear the lecturer,” said Khalil Darwish, Director of IT for RIT Dubai. For RIT Dubai, the key to a successful installation was finding a solution that allowed both the lecturer and students to focus on the lecturers’ content and not have to worry about the underlying technology.
As a proof of concept of the solution which Alpha Data, the system integrator for this project, had designed for RIT Dubai, the integrator equipped a ‘mock’ classroom in RIT’s old campus with the ClearOne solution.
