T1V continues to inspire in the JMU X-Labs - where professors and students are using ThinkHub technology to nurture a culture of creativity for an assortment of classes, performances, workshops, and more.
This semester, JMU X-Labs provided the space for James Madison University's College of Visual and Performing Arts - where the students in the sophomore seminar took collaboration and creativity to another level.
Dance and theater students paired art with technology to drive performances with ThinkHub collaboration software...
The students interact with the interactive wall - which is powered by ThinkHub and Epson projection technology. Multiple cameras create intentional infinity views - and even share recording versions of performances off-site with live performances in real-time in the JMU X-Labs right on the ThinkHub Canvas.
JMU X-Labs also launched a brand new, competitive program - one with increasing demand for a growing industry: eSports.
The space will set the stage for the eSports arena (also known as a game lounge or gaming center) to host eSports tournaments for students at JMU.
Students can organize matchups and manage tournaments on the ThinkHub Canvas - to broadcast gaming and even set up dashboards to track points and playoffs.
According to Nick Swayne, Founder of JMU X-Labs - a big “‘aha’ moment in the JMU X-Labs experience came from our first drone class.”
He continued, “As [drone] technology becomes more ubiquitous, we branched out and explored IoT Projects. In the meantime, we accumulated a few interesting drone projects that we put on hold. I’m happy to say we’re back working with drones.”
We can’t wait to see how JMU X-Labs continues to use ThinkHub to grow and innovate with the next generation of learning.
