Many universities today are looking for ways to remove barriers between students and successful learning – in and out of the classroom. Middle Tennessee State University (MTSU) recently looked to Epiphan to transform disparate classroom technology into scalable, fully aligned solutions for enhanced learning.
Leveraging existing technology for better student outcomes
Over the past few years, MTSU has taken great strides to elevate the learning experience for both remote and in-classroom students. Across over 400 classrooms, the university has invested time and money to add projectors, sound systems, document cameras, computers, and laptops.
To make the most of this investment, the MTSU Classroom AV team began searching for a device that could align all these devices to record lecture content and allow students to view it later or watch it via live stream. The team sought an easy-to-use, cloud-based solution that would scale across the 400+ classrooms.
“What’s exciting for me is the opportunity to choose the technology that the faculty and students interact with in the classroom and how that shapes their future.”
James Copeland, Director, Classroom Technology
Synthesising the learning experience with Epiphan, Panopto, and Zoom
Epiphan Pearl Mini fulfilled MTSU’s need for an automated lecture capture system to synthesise all classroom video sources, start and stop recordings, and deliver video to Panopto and Zoom. With cloud-based capabilities, the AV team can monitor the tech in each classroom live and remotely.
The MTSU Classroom Technology team aims to create an inclusive and immersive learning experience for students and faculty. And can they achieve this in a way that is intuitive for everyone and saves the small, two-person team time? Even better.
