For the first time ever, T1V is excited to introduce ThinkHub Connect active learning technology to the attendees of InfoComm 2018. T1V will demonstrate the future of learning as told through ThinkHub Connect – a totally connected, BYOD-enabled system developed for active learning environments.
T1V’s ThinkHub Connect is a hybrid of ThinkHub, ViewHub and AirConnect. Unlike other active learning tools, ThinkHub Connect is software-centric, which allows for easier roll-outs that replace hardware-centric deployments that are often painful and inefficient to introduce and integrate.
T1V will be recreating the active learning studios that will be launching at Texas A&M University’s College of Engineering Zachry Engineering Education Complex (ZEEC) this fall. Jim Morris, T1V CTO, adds “…at the ZEEC, students are able to experience one of the nation’s most ambitious classroom initiatives.” Morris adds, “…we’re excited to show InfoComm18 how our technology is helping to redefine learning experiences…”
With ThinkHub Connect, students and instructors can actively participate in class virtually anywhere through T1V’s AirConnect mobile app. The ability to connect into class sessions anywhere in the world offers the energy and spontaneity of discussion and learning that occurs in everyday classrooms to stay intact even in a remote learning environment. Plus, ThinkHub MultiSite allows instructors to reach multiple classrooms at the same time, thus giving students a consistent learning experience no matter where they are.
ThinkHub powers the ThinkHub Connect instructor station, giving instructors access to an interactive Canvas with built-in digital white-boarding. What’s more, instructors are able to share unlimited content and devices at the instructor station, with the ability to broadcast content (whether an individual app window or the entire Canvas) to the student stations. They can also monitor student station display activity and annotate on those displays to give real-time feedback.
ThinkHub Connect student stations are powered by ViewHub presentation technology, which enables students to wirelessly connect their devices to the shared student station display. The student stations support up to four wireless device connections at a time. All student stations can be viewed and controlled from the instructor station, while model student station work can then be broadcasted to the rest of the room.
ThinkHub Connect classrooms can be configured for many different room types and sizes, accommodating any number of students and faculty. To provide further flexibility, ThinkHub Connect classrooms can be augmented with instructor tablets, which the instructor can use to control their instructor station from the convenience and mobility of a tablet. With this accessory, instructors are free to walk the room and work with different groups while still controlling the flow of content to the student stations.
Rounding out the ThinkHub Connect system, ThinkHub Docks are ancillary displays that instructors can use to broadcast or ‘dock’ content if progressing through a lecture or simply want to provide static reference material for the classroom. Instructors can dock individual pieces of content (images, videos, shared devices, PDFs, sketches, notes, etc…) or the entire Canvas. All content that is docked streams in real time – so instructors can also make annotations, resize, or play live video or device streams.
