Collaborative Instructor Hub

Collaborative Instructor HubThe Collaborative Instructor Hub is the system used in Active Learning Classrooms to present materials and enable students to display and share content from their tables. The Hub is the latest version of the Digital Classroom Podium, designed to reflect the flexibility, mobility, and collaboration that occurs in active learning classrooms. Instructors who have used Digital Classroom Podiums will find much of the same functionality and ease of use. Hubs enable instructors to display images from a Mac Computer, their own personal devices, Blu-ray or DVD discs, and a high definition document camera. Images from these sources can be sent to any in-room display by selecting options on the Hub's touchscreen monitor.

In Active Learning Classrooms, students sit in groups and are able to send images from their laptops, phones, or tablets to a group monitor. The Hub gives the instructor the ability to control these monitors and share images that students are displaying with the rest of the class. The Hub is also equipped with Mersive screen sharing, through which anyone can wirelessly share images from their laptop, phone, or tablet without connecting any wires.

AB 4400Because Active Learning Classrooms are designed for interaction, Collaborative Instructor Hubs are located in the center of the room. The Hub includes an instructor table that can be electronically raised for those who wish to stand while teaching and lowered for sitting. A moveable touchscreen monitor can be used to control the system and use the computer while a second moveable monitor can be used to preview and view images from other displayed sources. A second table serves as a "student bar" where instructors can interact with students apart from the larger class.
