Just like the world of work, education has changed dramatically since the introduction of social distancing. Teachers and students have had to adapt to the new reality of distance learning and find new ways to connect, communicate and motivate.
The classroom has become virtual and new tools and resources are being utilised to ensure learning continues. The reality of remote and hybrid learning demands not only new and greater use of software solutions like Microsoft Teams and Microsoft 365, it also demands good audio on both sides of the computer.
Students and teachers are seeing new tools being incorporated into the learning process. Remote learning has meant staying at home and introducing students of all ages to video collaboration tools like Microsoft Teams. This also means students getting used to large video meetings that can accommodate all participants – often in excess of thirty students and even more when it comes to virtual college lectures.
Technology is also running to keep up with the new reality of remote education. Online learning portals are being used more than ever to set tasks and track student progress. Students are learning, working and submitting their work in online programs such as Microsoft 365. This means establishing new rules of interaction that are appropriate for the virtual classroom.
Premium audio brand EPOS has partnered with Microsoft to be able to offer audio devices that work seamlessly with the Microsoft Teams collaboration platform. This means that students, teachers and educational professionals can be sure of an excellent audio experience wherever they learn, teach and work.
