U Louisiana Monroe Outfits Classroom for Active and Hybrid Learning

University of Louisiana Monroe

A new active learning classroom at University of Louisiana Monroe's College of Pharmacy is designed for one-on-one interaction in class as well as participation from remote students. The college worked with ed tech provider Trox to outfit the institution's first active/hybrid learning space with a variety of collaboration and audiovisual technologies.

Features of the classroom include:

  • Seats for up to 84 students;
  • 14 student collaboration tables with displays, microphones and WolfVision Cynap Core collaboration and presentation hardware;
  • WolfVision vSolution MATRIX collaboration solution for wireless sharing of notes, presentations and other project materials between multiple screens, from any device; and
  • A camera that allows remote students to participate alongside their in-classroom peers.

"Student-centered, technology-rich classrooms are the future of higher education," explained Greg Andrews, classrooms and AV coordinator for the university, in a statement. "The University of Louisiana's first active learning classroom will give students more exposure to real-world experiences. Trox's expertise in the understanding of how to use technology to improve learning environments helped us create a space that fosters better communication and collaboration between teachers and their students — whether they are remote, in the classroom or a blend of both."
