Amplify the Learning Experience
New technologies, constant connectivity, and instant access to information are changing the classroom. Today, learning can take place anytime, anywhere. Flexible learning combines in-person instruction with online study to create personalized learning experiences that are engaging, convenient, and accessible.
Needs evolve over time, making flexibility and scalability key components of any successful installation. At Matrox, we build true relationships for creating a global network to help formulate comprehensive solutions for streaming, recording, converting, viewing, and developing video content. Higher learning institutions around the world rely on Matrox products to power modern learning environments—both inside and outside the classroom.
Matrox is at the center of your lecture capture workflow
Designed specifically for networked environments, Matrox® Monarch LCS integrates seamlessly with existing Video or Learning Management Systems (VMS or LMS) and pairs with a diverse range of third-party video technology and service providers, including Video Management Systems, Learning Management Systems, Content Delivery Networks, Media Servers, and Video Players. The Matrox® 6020 Remote Recorder appliance is a Panopto™-certified live streaming multi-recorder specifically designed for—and fully integrated with—Panopto’s industry-leading Video Management System (VMS).
Once configured, your dedicated Matrox appliance runs autonomously without faculty and student intervention, executing schedules and recordings, and automatically transferring assets into your VMS. Once inside, the VMS transfers the video assets to its final destination, your preferred LMS, where faculty and students access with a familiar interface. Ad-hoc recordings are also possible with the lecture capture appliances.
Today’s learning environments blend classical teaching with video technology to enhance the classroom experience. Lecture capture allows instructors to record lessons live in the classroom and share the content with students at a later time, giving students the ability to review material at their convenience. Through the VMS, students can dynamically choose to combine viewing materials or select layouts to suit their individual needs.
Online learning & on-demand courses
Bolster student engagement by putting learners in control of their education by giving students the ability to review lessons on their own time. Instructors can supplement coursework with online options to enhance the learning process and improve learner outcomes. The growth in adoption of online and on-demand learning also underscores the need for reliable technology capable of making education accessible to students who may not be able to attend traditional classes. For educational institutions, this also makes it possible to expand course offerings, attract more students, and increase enrollment.
Training & simulation labs
Technologies that allow for streaming student presentations—for peer assessment or professor evaluations—while recording copies for review purposes can help students improve their hands-on practice. Specialized labs and observation rooms create real-world simulations where students can bridge the gap between learning and practice. Lessons and lab experiments can be easily recorded by the instructor and combined with supporting material to accommodate different learning styles and needs.
Graduation ceremonies, sporting events, guest speakers, and performances—educational institutions are host to a number of events. Webcasting is the next-best thing to being there in person. Parents who might not be able to attend a special event or sporting activity, for example, can participate and watch in real-time through the schools’ own digital channels and via popular social media platforms, such as Facebook Live and YouTube.
