IT Labs are under increasing pressure to deliver more functions than just open access study, these spaces are also being used to deliver IT teaching, training and online exams. Presenting to students in traditional IT Labs requires a large amount of AV technology which is not always suitable for every type of space.
Our enthusiastic Student Intern, Anirudh Gangwal, has been experimenting with new ways to allow screen sharing between Tutors and Students in a standard Lab without the use of additional technology. Over the Summer of 2018 he has been evaluating solutions and engaging with potential users. The outcome of this work will be a pilot of a screen sharing and collaboration solution by Splashtop for Semester Two 18/19. Further information can be found here: Splashtop Education
We will keep this space updated with further news as we progress with our pilot.
