Connecting Instructors and Students With AVer and NDI®

July 02, 2021 by Scott Carroll

When the COVID-19 pandemic hit, UW-Parkside was forced to move quickly to a hybrid and distance learning model. “Up until 2019, we only had one room dedicated to distance education which served mostly as a receive function for the school, not a broadcast site. There was no way for professors to communicate with remote students unless they used their own laptop with the web cam,” said Linda Wawiorka, Instructional Technology Manager, UW-Parkside.

In 2020, they made the bold move to embrace video cameras from AVer using NDI® to change the face of the way their instructors and students would teach and learn. UW-Parkside now is capable of live streaming 30 classes this semester. Most of these classes are in a hybrid situation, with instructors teaching some students remotely and some in-person. The AVer auto tracking cameras make it possible for instructors to safely wear masks in the lecture hall while at the same time seamlessly following their moves.
