The changing nature of educational technology is both a challenge and an opportunity, as more and more universities and schools realize the increasing importance of equipping their facilities with solutions that bolster their curriculums in appealing and effective ways. As a place where information is communicated in both a visual and audio manner between multiple individuals, the classroom has been one of the primary sites of development in professional audiovisual (Pro A/V) equipment for decades.
As classroom technology becomes more advanced and new approaches towards learning increases the interaction between teacher and student, the need for unified and collaborative systems in education is more prominent than ever. But new technology always brings a new set of challenges as well and, solutions to those must be flexible enough to fit a wide range of teaching methods and philosophies. It must not complicate or overshadow the learning process. But, in many cases, adapting to the changes leads to purchasing expensive equipment that are later left to gather dust as teachers opt for traditional teaching tools like the whiteboard. ATEN’s classroom solutions provide simplicity, video quality and compatibility that both educators and students need to effectively utilize the Pro A/V equipment without a learning curve that saves precious learning time.
As regular classes are facing disruption due to unforeseen events administrators and prospective students at all levels of education are looking for remote learning solutions that are simple to implement while maintaining content quality and engagement level. Researchers at Technavio predict that the distance learning market is poised to grow by $90.37 billion during 2019-2023, progressing at a CAGR of over 9% during the forecast period. In accordance, a recent research report by Global Market Insights predicts that the e-learning market size is set to exceed $375 billion by 2026, with content availability related to course materials for educating and training students and employees surging over the past few years. All of this is strengthened by the increase of supporting technologies and propelled by the flexibility of remote learning.
