Birkbeck-University of London (London, U.K.), one of the world’s leading research universities, aims to “maintain and develop excellence in research and provide the highest quality research training.” In its mission to provide instructors and students with a more engaging teaching and learning environment, the Learning Space Technology Department began a search for an innovative technology solution. “It was a challenge finding a suitable alternative for our historical lamp- and laser-based projection whilst also offering a more engaging and interactive experience for users,” states Alex Horsburgh, Learning Space Technology Manager.
In their search, Birkbeck was introduced to the UX Pro interactive display by Clevertouch® Technologies. This state-of-the-art solution allows for increased opportunities for users to collaborate and engage thus optimizing the teaching and learning environment. Birkbeck invested in 14 UX Pro interactive displays that were installed in classrooms and lecture theater spaces.
For Birkbeck, interactivity was key in their decision to invest in the UX Pro. Horsburgh comments, “The Clevertouch screens deliver on two fronts for us. For teaching, they provide a broader set of tools that enhance the experience. They also provide an ideal solution for meetings and digital signage.”
Cutting-edge features of UX Pro interactive displays that continue to impress users include Super Glide Touch technology, infinity whiteboarding, room-filling sound, and cloud drive syncing.
“Having our users make use of the whiteboard applications, screen sharing, etcetera, opens up new possibilities to the learning and teaching experience,” says Horsburgh.
