Aneeta Gupta, President of Visionaire said her company is committed to the evolution of the UAE's education sector and the significance of the "Cloud Connected Classroom.
"The Ankabut User's Meeting provided the perfect platform for us to showcase the developments we have made in content creation and delivery systems to classrooms and to connected learners who may be located in different classrooms and different cities at the same time this was collaborated with partners like Arrive, Brocade Intel and Microsoft," she said.
Arrive's CloudPoint Interactive Appliance supports full HD output and gives universities and schools the opportunity to benefit from Ankabut through dedicated high-bandwidth connectivity, offering the unmatched cloud-based application to classrooms. The hardware is built on robust Intel architecture and with fully integrated Microsoft's App-V, Citrix and VM Ware Virtual Desktop Infrastructure.
The Arrive's ViewPoint HD Lecture Capture Appliance provides simultaneous data including the teachers' video, voice, and data screen which can be captured and broadcast simultaneously to connect students online.
"This is achieved utilising the high bandwidth available at Ankabut for distance learning and lecture archival - High Definition Recorded Lectures can be viewed by students at their own convenience many times and notes can be added to the lecture to create what is called "rich media"," added Gupta.
"It is being widely adopted by Universities and schools for archiving and creating live teaching experiences for remote classrooms as well as repeated viewing of the same class," concluded Gupta.
Additionally, Arrive's InfoPoint was showcased. This technology electronically delivers visual information on classroom status 'FREE/BUSY', on wall-mounted display panels outside the classrooms. This ultimately means that educational institutions can use the same technology for a variety of purposes from broadcast messages, announcements and emergency notifications (accompanied by an audible alarm) and also supports surveys.
Finally, the Rave Interactive OmniBoard was also displayed. A large size whiteboard with touch screen interface that can be positioned in the classroom to allow teachers ready access to the Arrive CloudPoint.
