Spelling Lesson: The words of distance learning
Does everyone in class know what Synchronous audio is?
Audiovisual engineers and technicians are at the head of the class this year. As many schools across the country resort to full-time remote learning, new words are popping up in the curriculum. One of those is synchronous. For AV folks, this lesson in technology class is nothing new, we’ve known the words forever. What’s new is the immediate rush to help schools get ready for online classes — and to help educate the educators on the many types of audio capabilities available to help teachers teach and students learn.
For those of you who have been thrown into the world of remote learning, audiovisual requirements, and a whole host of needs related to this new world of distance learning, Trinity Dynamics is here to help.
What is synchronous learning? It is online or distance education that happens in real time, whereas asynchronous learning occurs through online channels without real-time interaction. Many hybrid learning models will include a blend of both asynchronous and synchronous online learning. But models which use a strictly synchronous learning approach or a strictly asynchronous learning approach will have some distinctly different features. In a synchronous learning scenario, the teachers are in an empty classroom teaching to students in their own homes — and the teaching is happening in real-time.
Spell synchronous, and then use it in a sentence. S-i-n-c-r ….
What’s the best audio solution when students are learning from home?
Having teachers use synchronous audio is an ideal solution when all students are remote learning. Clear, quality sound is important, with no extra feedback or echo. Students don’t need any help being distracted during remote learning and teachers have it hard enough, right? The right set-up of a professionally installed synchronous audio solution helps with:
- High-quality audio with echo cancellation
- Frees up your workspace
- For distance learning, lecture capture, streaming and video conferencing
But — setting all this up isn’t as easy as it sounds, as you can see from the design schematic below. Using a professional AV engineers and install team will ensure that every classroom in the school or university is set up to provide the best learning experience possible.
