Issue

Al Andalus School is a prestigious international academic institution in Jeddah Saudi Arabia with especially designed creativity rooms and audio/visual learning centers apart from their science and IT labs to facilitate holistic learning. Owing to the COVID-19 pandemic, however, the school had to make a rapid shift to hosting all classes virtually. They wanted to ensure that their students have access to their quality education despite the challenges posed by the situation. Collaboration and interactivity was taking a big hit to the lack of physical interaction in classrooms. The administrating and teaching staff did not want to compromise on the quality of learning for their students, who have all been attending classes from their respective homes.

Solution

After sampling a range of BenQ’s solutions for education, the administration at Al Andalus found the RM7502K education interactive flat panel fit their needs more than others. They installed 80 units of the RM7502K across their campus to enable teachers to host live virtual classes from the school while teaching physical attendees simultaneously. This reduces duplicity of effort for the teachers and eliminates any loss of school-based learning for the virtual students. The new 75-inch 4K UHD displays empower and protect teachers and students with their advanced ClassroomCare® technologies. With the third generation of Germ-Resistant Screen, Air Quality Sensors, and Eye-Care Solutions, the IFP can facilitate the development of smart, collaborative, safe and interactive classrooms. It comes with exclusive in-class interactive whiteboard solution EZWrite and web-based whiteboarding app EZWrite Live for seamless virtual and distance learning. The whiteboard solutions are especially useful in current day project-based and blended learning that Al Andalus strives to foster. The school’s teachers agree and feel that the latest educational tool can prove to be even more beneficial when normal full-time school schedules resume. this will be even more useful in the time to come when full-attendance resumes in schools.
