Seoul Hanyoung University, a theological university in Seoul, South Korea, was still using blackboards and chalk in many of its classrooms. In an effort to bring its teaching facilities up to date, the school decided it was time to adopt electronic whiteboard technology.
Seoul Hanyoung University chose BenQ Education Interactive Flat Panels for its classrooms. These comprehensive whiteboard replacements provide excellent performance, introducing new ways for teachers and students to interact while also reducing recurring material costs.
The new BenQ displays have made class time more dynamic and interactive. Teachers have been taking advantage of built-in Android to run apps during class as needed. They also appreciate that BenQ’s EZWrite feature allows them to use the display just like a traditional blackboard, while also empowering them to make annotations on top of documents, photos, and videos.

BenQ Solution Used
A theological university in South Korea upgrades from blackboards and chalk to interactive whiteboard technology
"At Coomera Anglican College education is always moving forward. In 2017, the college took a big leap ahead by installing 35 BenQ Education Interactive Flat Panel Displays throughout the campus. Those displays featured multi-touch touchscreens and whiteboard capabilities that revolutionized the college’s classrooms and introduced novel ways for teachers and students to interact. The displays also offered stunning picture quality and reliability that has not let Coomera Anglican College down since. Fast forward two years to 2019. This time, the college was trying to come to terms with the sheer number of devices that students and teachers use in the modern classroom. Students and teachers alike needed a way to take content on their devices, whether they be smartphones, tablets, or laptops, and share it on the big screen. Although Coomera Anglican College had a variety of presentation solutions, these solutions weren’t available in every classroom and not every solution worked with every kind of device. The college wanted to bring in a system that could streamline the process and ensure that content such as broadcasts, alerts, presentations, and other information could be shared anywhere, anytime."
Finding a solution that would seamlessly integrate with existing IT equipment was a top priority. With this goal in mind, school staff soon recognized that BenQ’s line of education flat panels would be the ideal solution. The BenQ RP6501K 4K UHD 65” Education Interactive Flat Panel Display proved to be the perfect size for Seoul Hanyoung’s classrooms, and it also offered a full array of teacher-friendly features. The first key feature that caught the attention of the staff at Seoul Hanyoung was the RP6501K’s accurate touch-sensing capability. The RP6501K boasts Intelligent Handwriting Recognition, which can instantly convert written text, numbers, and figures into clearly legible digital text. It also features Brush Mode, which allows users to paint on the display as though they are using a real paintbrush.
Furthermore, the RP6501K supports Dual Pens, allowing two users to write on the display simultaneously with different colors. The second key feature is the RP6501K’s built-in Android OS. This operating system allows the RP6501K to operate as an interactive learning center without need for an external PC or smart device. Teachers can load apps to the OS and use them during class time, or they can use the web browser and built-in document reader to directly call up web content or documents at will. Best of all, BenQ’s exclusive EZWrite technology allows users to annotate on top of any content they wish. For example, teachers could play a video and draw notes on it in real time. With EZWrite, the possibilities are endless. Finally, because they were designed specifically for classroom use, BenQ’s Education Flat Panel Displays come with features designed to protect the health of students and teachers. The RP6501K is a low blue-light display that employs both flicker-free and anti-glare technology. This trio of features reduces eye strain and keeps students and teachers feeling fresh. Also, a germ-resistant coating on the display helps prevent the transmission of germs, ensuring that teachers and students can use the touchscreen with greater peace of mind.
Teachers and students alike are singing the praises of X-Sign Broadcast. One Coomera Anglican College instructor said that in his dozens of years of experience with projectors and displays in the classroom, BenQ’s system is the first he’s used that fits seamlessly into his teaching process. Meanwhile, students have been impressed by the displays that let them share content from Windows, Apple, and Android devices at the same time. And because the new displays allow for sharing between classrooms, learning and collaborating on a greater scale has never been easier. Designed with schools in mind, BenQ’s X-Sign Broadcast has brought students and teachers together and helped them reach the next level of learning.
