Las Pantallas Interactivas ViewBoard de ViewSonic Ayudan a Impulsar la participación/colaboración? en el Aula para el Colegio Bautista de Temuco

PERFIL

El Colegio Bautista de Temuco es una universidad bautista ubicada en Temuco, Chile, y fue fundada por un misionero llamado Guillermo Mac Donald. A través de su trabajo, Mac Donald estableció contactos con la Convención Bautista del Sur de los Estados Unidos y logró obtener recursos para comprar terrenos y construir el primer edificio del Colegio Bautista, hoy conocido como el "edificio Guillermo Mac Donald".

Las clases en el Colegio Bautista empezaron el 15 de marzo de 1922, con diez externos y diez internas. El primer edificio se inauguró el 12 de octubre de 1922. El Colegio Bautista de Temuco es una comunidad que tiene un gran compromiso con sus estudiantes, cuerpo docente y administrativos. Juntos esperan lograr una educación integral para sus alumnos que cursan desde kinder hasta cuarto medio.

  • Los estudiantes y los docentes debían adaptarse a la enseñanza y el aprendizaje en línea durante la pandemia.

  • Mejorar la enseñanza de habilidades tecnológicas.

Debido a la pandemia del COVID-19, Chile, como muchos otros países, buscó proteger a sus ciudadanos a través de cuarentenas, cierres de escuelas y acciones similares. Por lo mismo es que uno de los mayores afectados fueron los estudiantes y profesores, quienes tuvieron que adaptarse para lograr aprender y enseñar a través de clases en línea; y no solo eso, también debieron ser autodidactas para encajar y unir la tecnología en sus métodos de enseñanza. Esto motivó al Colegio Bautista mejorar la enseñanza de habilidades tecnológicas a sus estudiantes para que de esta manera cualquier equipo, aplicación o sistema de mundo de la tecnología no fuera desconocido para ellos.

El Colegio Bautista comenzó a buscar pantallas interactivas que pudieran ayudar mejor a los docentes a impartir sus lecciones desde cualquier lugar. Con una resolución de 4K UltraHD, una pantalla táctil de 20 puntos con gran capacidad de respuesta y el software myViewBoard® incluido, que permitía a los docentes impartir clases a distancia, las pantallas interactivas ViewBoard® de ViewSonic® eran exactamente lo que la escuela necesitaba.

"Buscábamos algo que se acomodara a la realidad del colegio y a las expectativas que también teníamos, y Viewsonic respondió a esas expectativas”, dijo José Luis Salinas, Rector del Colegio Bautista de Temuco."

"We decided to use the ViewBoard interactive displays because they gave us the ease of connecting any type of device. It was also from one of the few brands that could provide the equipment quickly during the pandemic, coupled with our trust in ViewSonic and the relationship we had already built”


— SILVANA BALAREZO, UPC DIGITAL LEARNING EXPERIENCE MANAGER

THE CHALLENGE

line drawing of a circular mazeline drawing of a circular maze
  • Leverage professors’ digital literacy and use of technology during the pandemic. 

  • Engage in hybrid education that is neither complex for teachers to use nor a distraction in their teaching process. 

Following the pandemic, UPC leaders wanted to foster a return to in-person education, without losing the technology literacy they had gained after two years of lockdown.

“We were looking for a technological proposal that would not be complex for teachers to use or distract them from their teaching process, and we wanted a technology that could be feasible over time to take advantage of all the lessons learned by teachers and students,” says Silvana Balarezo, Digital Learning Experience Manager at UPC.

UPC had already been using ViewSonic® ViewBoard® interactive displays in academic environments, creative rooms and a pilot student project which still continues today.

“We decided to use the ViewBoard interactive displays because they gave us the ease of connecting any type of device. It was also from one of the few brands that could provide the equipment quickly during the pandemic, coupled with our trust in ViewSonic and the relationship we had already built,” Balarezo said.

One of UPC’s main objectives was that students benefit from any education mode. If a student attended face-to-face lessons, they should feel that it was worth coming to the campus, and an online student should feel as if they were inside the classroom sharing the same experience as their classmates, with no need to come to the physical classroom. 

This is the reason why UPC adopted the Hyflex concept in which hybrid classrooms are designed to function as physical, 100% remote or both, without affecting education quality or the learning experience in thanks to the equipment used.

“Our mission was to make professors feel comfortable in the classroom. We didn’t want them to feel that they were in a recording studio,” said Balarezo. “The classroom needed to have the technological tools to motivate learning and support collaborative activities between face-to-face and online students.”

THE SOLUTION

line drawing of a circular mazeline drawing of a circular maze
  • Leverage professors’ digital literacy and use of technology during the pandemic. 

  • Engage in hybrid education that is neither complex for teachers to use nor a distraction in their teaching process. 

ViewSonic set up 72 classrooms with ViewBoard IFP8650 86” Ultra HD 4K displays, along with VPC25-W33-P1 slot-in PCs with Windows 10 Pro, and Viewboard Cast™ software for Windows licenses. This setup allowed students and teachers to make wireless presentations from any of their devices to the displays using a licensed application.

In addition, UPC added wireless physical classroom microphones for teachers and students, a pro camera for streaming and a secondary display so that the teacher can view and manage remote students. This very successful layout was designed after taking into account UPC’s previous experiences with online and hybrid classrooms.

“We should highlight that the ViewSonic slot-in PCs, which are installed on the back of the ViewBoard display, deliver computing power without the traditional wiring required to connect a PC,” said Balarezo. “This provides a user-friendly environment for professors to manage the display, the online sessions, and the use of online classrooms and videoconferences.” 

In addition, a teacher certification process was implemented for the ViewBoard displays. UPC currently has 200 certified professors and 800 teachers undergoing the certification process.

“Our professors were initially apprehensive because of what we had experienced during the pandemic, but once classes started, students also accepted the new education mode. Today, faculty members encourage diversified student interaction in the classroom, including online and face-to-face student groups and work, in addition to promoting autonomous learning,” said Balarezo. 

THE RESULTS

Line drawing of a rocketLine drawing of a rocket
  • Customized learning, access to different educational services and review with recorded lessons.

  • Teacher-friendly technology as if they were using a PC, tablet or cell phone.

  • UPC became a modern, diverse and inclusive teaching university.

Students highly value the possibility of choosing between face-to-face or online learning, with the same advantages and benefits in either learning mode. 

Professors value the convenience and agility with which they work using the ViewBoard interactive displays, including the myViewBoard® Whiteboard software for highlighting and creating content, which helps to provide better presentations. 

“Having a group of face-to-face and online students provides a lot of flexibility to interact. It is essential for the development of autonomous learning and also for students to feel engaged and identify with the university,” said Elías Neira, Education History and Philosophy Professor at UPC.

ViewSonic ViewBoard Interactive Displays Bring 21st Century Presentation Capabilities to the Greater LA Council of the Boy Scouts of America

CASE STUDY

ViewSonic ViewBoard Interactive Displays Bring 21st Century Presentation Capabilities to the Greater LA Council of the Boy Scouts of America

COMPANY

Founded in 1915, the Greater Los Angeles Area Council of the Boy Scouts of America is dedicated to preparing young people to make ethical and moral choices over their lifetimes by instilling in them the values of the Scout Oath and Law. The program presents fun, engaging, and valuable experiences directed at the maturity and interests of the young people at their appropriate age and ability levels. The purpose of the Greater Los Angeles Area Council is to meaningfully and proactively offer leadership for the delivery and quality of the program, to assemble and train volunteers, and to gather resources to implement and promote the program to parents, youth, and the general community in the Greater Los Angeles Areas.

"The 4K images are beautiful and the ViewSonic ViewBoard displays are so easy to use. They’re great for hybrid as well as in-person meetings, when some participants can’t be there in the room with us.”


— KEVIN BURTON, GREATER LOS ANGELES AREA COUNCIL IT ANALYST

PROBLEM

line drawing of a circular mazeline drawing of a circular maze
  • The Greater LA Council’s presentation technology was aging and in need of an upgrade. 
  • Existing technology limited resource sharing and had limited presentation capabilities. 

Effective meetings are critical to the operations of Boy Scouts of America Councils across the country. Regularly scheduled volunteer training sessions, as well as staff and Scout and Board of Directors meetings, keep the Councils on track and achieving their youth service goals. At the Greater Los Angeles Area Council building, the main training space was in clear need of an upgrade. Dating back to the building’s grand opening in 2008, the wiring was becoming glitchy and the presentation technology was more than outdated.

“We were making do with screens and projectors that were arleady old when they were donated,” said Charlie Wilson, the Council’s Director of Finance and Performance Management, who noted that as thrifty Scouts, they rely heavily on donations. “By the time we were thinking about upgrading, it was a very old system. The wiring was going bad. The colors were going bad. The mic wasn’t working. It was, to put it simply, a disaster.”

The disaster cleanup plan called for an up-to-date mobile solution that could be used throughout the facility, in addition to the large main meeting and training space, which itself could be bisected into two smaller spaces.

“We wanted to achieve an upgrade that would meet our needs now and for a long time coming,” said Kevin Burton, the Council’s IT Analyst. “At minimum we needed a new screen and a new sound system, so we looked to a third party for help.”

SOLUTION

line drawing of a jigsaw puzzle pieceline drawing of a jigsaw puzzle piece
  • Two ViewSonic® ViewBoard® IFP7550 interactive flat panel displays mounted on ViewSonic VB-STND-001 rolling carts

Wilson, Burton, and the Council’s Director of Support Service, Steve Smith, reached out to AV expert and Eagle Scout, John Brown, to provide that assistance.

“John is a big fan of Scouting and he’s CEO of The Showpros, an AV company that’s donated a lot of work to our Council,” said Burton. “It turned out that he’s also a big fan of ViewSonic and their products, and with his connections we were able to receive two donated ViewSonic® ViewBoard® displays and mobile carts.” 

Set up, said Burton, was fast and easy.

“Our ViewSonic rep offered to come help,” he said. “But we didn’t need it. John and I just got out our screwdrivers, assembled the stands, and had the ViewBoard interactive flat panel displays up and going in no time.”

RESULTS

Line drawing of a rocketLine drawing of a rocket
  • Embedded ViewBoard features boost the efficiency and productivity of Board meetings, staff meetings and volunteer trainings
  • Presentations are easy to view, with crisp 4K images and the ability to position the displays based on seating/goals
  • Mobile carts enable cost-effective resource sharing

Since the deployment of the new displays, the Council has used them for every training, staff meeting and board of directors meeting.

“The 4K images are beautiful and the ViewSonic ViewBoard displays are so easy to use,” said Burton. “They’re great for hybrid as well as in-person meetings, when some participants can’t be there in the room with us.”

Flexibility, the Council team agreed, is another valuable feature of the new presentation equipment.

“Not only can we deliver outstanding meetings and presentations, but these displays are also terrific when used like a whiteboard,” said Burton. “For example, the Board members like to put a PowerPoint presentation on one screen and take notes on the other screen.”

Annotating directly onto presentation content also comes in handy, he added, noting a recent website redesign meeting where the team was able to highlight and draw directly on the proposed designs.

Beyond the flexibility of features inherent to the ViewBoard displays, the ViewSonic mobile carts enable the Council to use the displays in a number of ways, extending the value of the resource.

“We can use one in each of the main training rooms, or use them together as mentioned,” said Burton. “Then, when they’re needed in another space in our facilities, it’s simple to move them there as well. It’s also handy to be able to reposition them within a room, depending on the seating arrangement and goals of the meeting. We could even use them outside in our pocket park.”

The team looks forward to finding additional ways to leverage their new cutting-edge presentation technology.

“We are so grateful to ViewSonic and The Showpros,” said Burton. “We are getting so much use out of these displays, and we know we’ll keep finding ways to use them, including having more Scouts themselves use them to give presentations.”

The capabilities of their new presentation system outshine anything any of them have seen at other regional Council meetings. While maintaining the humbleness of Scouts, the team is clearly pleased with being a trailblazer in Scouting presentation technology.

“These presentation capabilities are a first for the Scouts,” said Smith. “I’ve worked at several Councils and have been to many Scout meetings. This is the first one to have this level of AV equipment available to its staff and volunteers.”

Gatineau-Based Private School Adopts ViewSonic Digital Learning Solution to Navigate A Changing Landscape



Case Study

Gatineau-Based Private School Adopts ViewSonic Digital Learning Solution to Navigate A Changing Landscape

Company

For the Collège Nouvelles-Frontières private high school in Gatineau, the pandemic has proven to be a catalyst for innovation. Like many schools, Nouvelles-Frontières had to quickly adapt its existing technology resources to accommodate a distance learning model. The early months of the pandemic were the ideal starting point for the school to develop an entirely new, flexible approach to distance learning that would serve the students’ and teachers’ needs in both the short and long term. One key to its successful transition was investing in ViewSonic’s interactive teaching platform to improve collaboration, increase engagement and ensure that learning could continue uninterrupted – whether students were in the classroom or at home.

Overview

Problem:

  • The technology they had previously had limited applications for distance learning due to issues around image quality, camera performance and connectivity

Solution:

  • ViewSonic ViewBoard® and myViewBoard™ Software

Result:

  • All requirements were met and/or exceeded
  • School’s administration team can remotely control its displays
  • Students are more engaged and can concentrate more easily from home
  • Mac, iOS, Android and Windows formats accommodate presentations and guest speakers

We realized that providing state-of-the-art tools to teachers would be beneficial in managing future waves of the pandemic and would ensure that we could always deliver quality teaching to our students whatever the situation.

— Serge Lévesque, Coordinator of Computer and Material Resources

Problem

According to Serge Lévesque, coordinator of computer and material resources at the Collège Nouvelles-Frontières, the early days of distance learning were difficult because of technological limitations. When Gatineau went into lockdown in the spring, the school was already using projectors and tablets. However, due to issues around image quality, camera performance and connectivity, the technology had limited applications for distance learning.

“It became more difficult when we moved to combined distance and in-class education, with students at school and others at home,” says Lévesque. “We realized that providing state-of-the-art tools to teachers would be beneficial in managing future waves of the pandemic and would ensure that we could always deliver quality teaching to our students whatever the situation.”

The quest was on to find a platform that met the needs of educators, engaged students and was simple to use. After conducting an exhaustive search of different technology platforms, the Collège Nouvelles-Frontières chose the ViewSonic® ViewBoard® advanced interactive teaching platform.

The ViewSonic ViewBoard® education ecosystem includes platform-agnostic interactive flat panel displays and digital whiteboarding software designed for the rapidly evolving needs of today’s education environments. The myViewBoard™ software platform is full-featured, connecting the school’s students and teachers in a more dynamic and engaging way by enabling real-time collaboration from any location, with cloud-based portability, screen mirroring/sharing and digital whiteboarding.

Today, all classes at Collège Nouvelles-Frontières use ViewSonic ViewBoard displays. Because the technology is wireless, it reduces the need for additional projectors and speakers. “Previously we had a lot of wires, and a lot of technical problems,” recalls Lévesque, who says he appreciates the ability to simplify their systems through a single product that meets all the needs of students and teachers, “The ViewSonic solution replaces everything.”

Optional features include the ability to import files, such as lecture notes, from third-party software. Teachers can also browse the web or open apps directly from the interactive screen, saving time that would have otherwise been spent repurposing content. In addition, educators are empowered to choose the collaboration software they need based on their specific requirements. Using vCast™ software, students can even share content from their tablet or computer onto the classroom whiteboard.

Solution

myViewBoard software supports both Mac and iOS environments and is also compatible with Android and Windows formats. Lévesque says this feature was critical in accommodating the presentations of invited external speakers who use different platforms.

Using the myViewBoard.com website, the school’s administration team can remotely control its displays. Administrators and staff can open, close, broadcast and update content without having to physically move to each room.

In the event of a return to remote learning, myViewBoard will enable teachers to run an effective and efficient virtual classroom. With features like virtual discussion groups and warnings when a student is not paying attention, teachers are able to create a more informed learning experience tailored to students’ needs.

As the year progresses, the administration will also be able to use interactive whiteboards to disseminate promotional material and relevant information during open houses and parent meetings. “We will be able to move them everywhere depending on how we need to use them,” says Lévesque.

Lévesque notes that the interactive ViewSonic learning platform stimulates students and improves their concentration, regardless of whether the teaching is done in the classroom, at home, or across different places simultaneously.

Result

Lévesque adds that the Collège Nouvelles-Frontières is known within the education sector as a leader in integrating new technologies, “It’s always been our trademark, but it has to make sense for students.”

In fact, Collège Nouvelles-Frontières showcases its latest investment in ViewSonic solutions in its recruitment campaigns as a way to distinguish itself from other schools.

Whether the school year is managed in class or remotely, Collège Nouvelles- Frontières is ready for any situation that might arise in the coming year, says Lévesque. “Everyone’s tasks will be optimized with this new technology.”

ViewSonic ViewBoard Interactive Displays Help Boost Classroom Engagement for Colegio Bautista de Tamuco




Case Study

ViewSonic ViewBoard Interactive Displays Help Boost Classroom Engagement for Colegio Bautista de Tamuco








Company

Colegio Bautista de Temuco is a Baptist college located in Temuco, Chile and was founded by a missionary named Guillermo Mac Donald. Through his missionary work, Mac Donald established contacts with the Southern Baptist Convention of the United States and managed to receive resources to buy land and build the first building of the Baptist College, today known as the Guillermo Mac Donald building.

Classes at the Colegio Bautista began on March 15, 1922, with 10 externs and 10 interns. Today, Colegio Bautista de Temuco is deeply committed to its students, faculty and administration. Together, they hope to successfully deliver comprehensive education for its students in kindergarten through high school.





Overview



Problem:

  • Students and teachers needed to adapt to online teaching and learning during the pandemic
  • Staff needed to improve technology skills teaching




Solution:

  • Installation of 15 ViewBoard IFP7550 75-inch interactive displays in classrooms
  • Deployment of myViewBoard digital whiteboard software




Result:

  • Interactive lessons that are easy to share and deliver
  • Increased lesson engagement and focus
  • The school is fulfilling its mission to integrate technology into its classrooms, and
  • improving students’ technology skills











We were looking for something that would accommodate the school’s reality as well as our expectations, and ViewSonic exceeded those expectations.

— José Luis Salinas, Rector of Colegio Bautista de Temuco




Problem




Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Chile, like many other countries, sought to protect its citizens via quarantines, school closings and similar actions. As a result, students and teachers needed to adapt quickly to online learning and teaching. In addition, students and teachers needed to learn how to use new technologies that enabled remote education.

Colegio Bautista began looking for interactive displays that could better help its teachers deliver their lessons from any location. Featuring 4K Ultra HD resolution, a responsive 20-point touchscreen, and included myViewBoard® software that enabled teachers to deliver remote lessons, ViewSonic® ViewBoard® interactive displays were exactly what the school needed.




“We were looking for something that would accommodate the school’s reality as well as our expectations, and ViewSonic exceeded those expectations,” said José Luis Salinas, Rector of Colegio Bautista de Temuco.











Solution




Colegio Bautista de Temuco’s administration searched for interactive displays, and the 75-inch ViewBoard® IFP7550 display won them over. The school met with ViewSonic to discuss display features, learn about the myViewBoard software ecosystem that runs on the ViewBoard displays, and find out first-hand how everything worked.




Salinas learned that not only would the ViewBoard displays serve as a great classroom collaboration tool, but they would also help Colegio Bautista de Temuco’s students become more familiar with interactive technologies.

The school installed 15 ViewBoard IFP7550 displays, and trained 72 of its teachers and staff on how to use the displays and the included myViewBoard software suite. The displays are currently used in fourth through eighth-grade classrooms during this first stage of implementation.

12 more ViewBoard displays will be installed in first through fourth-grade classrooms during a second stage of implementation. Furthermore, 15 additional ViewBoard displays will be installed in kindergarten through third-grade classrooms in a final implementation scheduled for 2023.












Result




Thanks to the ViewBoard IFP7550 and the myViewBoard software suite, teachers at Colegio Bautista can record their lessons and annotations directly on the screen, and then easily share these lessons with both in-classroom and remote students. Despite the teachers’ initial fear of the new technology, they’ve found the ViewSonic solution to be easy-to-use, and that it makes lessons more enjoyable for their students.




“It is a real head-turner for students, so it immediately engages them and makes learning easier for them,” said Javiera Larraguibel, elementary school teacher at Colegio Bautista. “For teachers, the solution is convenient, it has great image and sound quality, and it has been an excellent tool and platform for familiarizing our staff with new technologies.”

Javiera also explained that the ViewBoard IFP7550 interactive display and myViewBoard software allow her to easily and dynamically apply different learning tactics including auditory, kinesthetic and visual, to her classroom. This ultimately boosts the attention of her students for lessons that are more effective.

ViewSonic Helps Create an Immersive Visual Exhibition at German Museum



Case Study

ViewSonic Helps Create an Immersive Visual Exhibition at German Museum

Company

The A.M. Architekturmuseum was established in 1868 as a teaching collective for students of architecture at the present-day Technical University. When Friedrich von Thiersch erected a new building for the University in Gabelsbergerstrasse in 1912, the architectural collection was accommodated in a large, representative wing of the building and formed the center of the Department of Architecture. The museum advanced its programs in September 2002 by opening its own dedicated presentation rooms in the Pinakothek der Moderne.

Overview

Problem:

  • Simplify the art curation workflow and enhance the agility of the “Taiwan Acts!” exhibition at the Architekturmuseum der TUM in Germany
  • Minimize installation time for the visual-based event

Solution:

  • The ViewSonic® LD135-152 is a 135” All-in-One Direct View LED Display Solution Kit that provided easy delivery, installation, and maintenance.

Result:

  • Quick and convenient installation of the LED Display Solution Kit reduced the setup time to a minimum, significantly improving facilitation of the exhibition tour
  • High-level immersive storytelling thanks to advanced visual display technology
  • Stunning visual quality and performance that captivated and charmed over 30,000 visitors at the Architekturmuseum der TUM

ViewSonic’s All-in-One Direct View LED Display Solution Kit really enhances the exhibition space. The audience gets the spirit of the event and is much closer to the artwork with the huge format of the immersive video display. I think that really makes a big difference.

— Dr. Andres Lepik, Director of A.M. Architekturmuseum der TUM

Problem

”Taiwan Acts!” is a visual spectacle curated at the Architekturmuseum der TUM in Munich, Germany. This international exhibition showcases multiple architectural initiatives created after the devastating earthquake in Taiwan on September 21, 1999. The show aims to raise awareness about the role of architecture through social dialogue.

The curators of the exhibit needed to find a way to provide an easy and intuitive installation for an exhibition that will travel across the globe. They also wanted to bring Taiwanese art and culture to an international audience via advanced visual technology solutions.

Solution

The ViewSonic® LD135-152 is a 135” All-in-One Direct View LED Display Solution Kit that provides easy delivery, installation, and maintenance. The pre- assembled, modular design allows for easy setup within minutes from unboxing, while the movable flight case makes for easy transport. With 360° rotational mobility and a built-in motorized height-adjustable stand, this display effortlessly moves through different exhibit layouts, while elevating the curation experience to the next level.

With a huge, bezel-free 135’’ screen size, Full HD resolution, high brightness, and vivid colors, this solution kit meets and exceeds the high quality required within visual arts, creating an immersive atmosphere and engaging visitors on a deeper level, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

The preassembled kit lowers the technical barrier for installers, making setup simple and efficient. With just a single click, the large 135” LED display is ready for instant use and comes with built-in power supplies, control systems and stitching machines.

With a built-in motorized floor stand, curators were able to easily adjust the height of the display up to a maximum range of nearly 24-inches with the simple press of a button. Up to four different sets of height preferences can be saved for convenient recurring use.

Result

During the exhibit, various documentaries were played on the massive 135” Direct View LED Display. The museum saw over 30,000 visitors during the exhibit, each of them wowed by the impactful storytelling and immersive visual experience delivered by the ViewSonic display. Over 100 Taiwanese architectural projects were featured, each emphasizing social dialog and engagement including social, economic, humanitarian and cultural topics.

“We’re very happy to collaborate with ViewSonic to prepare this kind of large exhibition,” said Dr. Chen-Yu Chiu, curator of Taiwan Acts! “We used the 135-inch All-in-One Direct View LED Display Solution Kit to play documentary videos showing Taiwan’s urban landscape. It provided a breathtaking viewing experience and simplified the installation time to 10 minutes.”

Because the LD135-152 kit comes pre-assembled, it was quickly installed and allowed the museum staff to focus on the most important part of the exhibit: creating the best visual setup for its visitors. Experimenting with different height adjustments and angles, the staff customized the display according to the exhibit’s objectives and the unique museum space. The ideal position was secured and stabilized with the press of a button.

The Direct View LED Display was ready to go with a single cable plug-in. This reduced the need for multiple cables and provided a cleaner overall installation. Because the kit’s storage space could keep multiple digital files, it granted peace of mind to those managing such a large art event. No additional components or space was required either, maximizing the possible number of visitors. The intuitive use of the display also benefited the museum on a day-to-day basis, by giving operational ease for staff working different shifts.

“I think it made a huge difference compared to exhibitions we’ve done so far,” said Dr. Andres Lepik, Director of A.M. Architekturmuseum der TUM. “ViewSonic’s All-in-One Direct View LED Display Solution Kit really enhances the exhibition space. The audience gets the spirit of the event and is much closer to the artwork with the huge format of the immersive video display. I think that really makes a big difference.”

CSUDH Esports Association Grows with ViewSonic Gaming Monitors and a Vision of Student Success



Case Study

CSUDH Esports Association Grows with ViewSonic Gaming Monitors and a Vision of Student Success

Company

California State Dominguez Hills (CSUDH) is a public university serving over 17,000 students, located in the Los Angeles metro area, in Carson, California. CSUDH is part of the largest system of public higher education in the United States. The campus is strategically located in the heart of a major technological, industrial and transportation complex amidst an international and multiethnic population, and cultural pluralism is a major characteristic of the university. CSUDH provides education, scholarship and service that is, by design, accessible and transformative. The university welcomes students who seek academic achievement, personal fulfillment, and preparation for the work of today and tomorrow.

Overview

Problem:

  • CSUDH needed esports equipment including computers, peripherals, furniture, audio, networking and most importantly state-of-the art displays

Solution:

  • ViewSonic gaming monitors, large screen digital displays and interactive whiteboards

Result:

  • Esports Incubator Lab was equipped with ViewSonic solutions to better serve esports athletes
  • Esports Incubator Lab designed to be creative epicenter for the cultivation of ideas, the promotion of student projects, and a showcase for competitive gaming
  • Internship pipeline for CSUDH students was developed

I couldn’t be happier with the ViewSonic team, they are terrific
to work with. Their vision parallels ours. In addition to their
generous product and apparel support, ViewSonic is working
with us to develop an internship pipeline for CSUDH students,
which will allow them to begin to transfer the skills they’re
learning in esports to the workplace.

— Ruben Caputo, CSUDH Esports Academic Advisor

Problem

The CSUDH esports program began as a grassroots club in 2017 with three student participants. By 2019 it had grown to over 200 members, but lacked a consistent meeting place. For a time, a corner in the lower level of the Student Union became their home, until once again the organization (now known as the CSUDH Esports Association) was bursting at the seams. They needed more space, and they needed more equipment to accommodate growing interest in what has become over a 1.1 billion-dollar industry.

Logistical challenges around space and equipment notwithstanding, possibly the greatest challenge the esports program at CSUDH faced in its first few years was to nurture its growth in a way that would meet the core program tenets set by the administration: academics and research; community engagement; competition, and entertainment, in roughly that order.

“When people think about esports, they think competition and they think about having fun,” said Ruben Caputo, CSUDH Esports Academic Advisor and team general manager, “But esports offers so much more, and we wanted our program to reflect that. First and foremost, we wanted it to provide students with experiences they could readily translate into life skills and career opportunities. Equally important to us was that we spark engagement both within the program and the university, as well as the community at large.”

The objectives below the surface of these four tenets were ambitious.

Under the first pillar, program administrators sought to provide an environment that would promote and enable the development of multidisciplinary competencies, as well as extend their vision of education through esports to other educational organizations. Community engagement would entail fostering a compassionate, multigenerational community rich with community service.
To engage in competition, the program planned to welcome and coach gamers of all experience levels to become a new breed of elite gamers with an appreciation for diversity, healthy living, academic success and life balance. Even entertainment would not be purely for fun – students would directly participate in and develop capabilities around how to broadcast and host high-quality events. Throughout their engagement with these four pillars of the program, student members would develop interpersonal and technical skills.

In the pursuit of these objectives, Caputo and his team encountered both anticipated and unforeseen obstacles, including the pandemic, parental concerns, preconceptions about gaming, and at times the very nature of many gamers themselves. To grow the program as envisioned, Caputo would need to convince students and parents of the many social, academic and career-focused benefits of organized gaming. He would need to find sufficient space, technology and resources to support the group’s goals.

Solution

Looking back over the formative years that led to the CSUDH Esports Association’s third consecutive crowning as the NECC National Gaming Competition champion in 2021, Caputo reflects that the key has been to grow organically. To an outsider looking in, it’s clear that having a passionate advocate like Caputo, paired with strong administrative support, were also prime components of the organization’s success. In 2018, when CSUDH President Dr. Thomas Parham assumed leadership of the university, he and Caputo met to discuss the trajectory of the program, forming the four domains that would guide its ongoing development.

Dr. Parham recalled during a speech at the presentation of the first team jerseys that he had invited potential supporters to consider that, “…gaming…is a strategy not just an outcome. If we can create opportunity through gaming for our students to learn coding, there’s a transferable asset in there to get them through these courses and to get them into that workforce later on once they graduate,” said Parham, adding that, “[esports] is not simply competition, it is about ways in which we as an institution can enhance the lives of our students through gaming.”

The first step toward the program they envisioned, said Caputo, was to explore interest within the university community, which they found to be overwhelming. Next, he brought in faculty from diverse departments to join the Esports Association board and provide multidisciplinary expertise. These 20 individuals now enhance the Association with the unique perspective of fields ranging from computer science, design and communications to marketing, psychology and civic engagement.

The path from there included events and activities to foster dialog with families, community educators, and industry personnel. It was around this time that the organization reached 200 members and received its first official home in the student union, outfitted with a small amount of permanent equipment. The group became more organized, setting up its own Discord communication portal, holding regular meetings and hosting small, casual gaming events on campus.

“Before this, students brought their own equipment with them, lugging in consoles and even monitors,” said Caputo. “With the added stability of our own space, I started to think about how we could get these kids, who tend to be introverted and often shy and reserved, more involved in the processes around the esports industry; to get them problem solving, gaining transferrable skills
and gaining confidence.”

Much of the students’ growth came from the very act of belonging to the club; many had never participated in extracurricular activities and tended to spend their free time gaming alone from home. More learning came from the inherent problem solving and critical thinking required to excel at the games. Even more transformative education occurred as the Association expanded and the students learned to work together as teams, host large events, design promotional materials, program, broadcast competitions, and the many other activities related to the world of esports.

One unique project that Caputo facilitated with the group provided a notable springboard for learning and community building.

“At a group meeting we began talking about the barriers to entry into esports, which can be cost-prohibitive for many students,” said Caputo. “I asked them, how could we lower those barriers and pushed them to do some out-of-the-box thinking. We unpacked the problem without actually using any technology, just sticky notes and a whiteboard.”

Together they dove into the concept of design thinking, while enjoying some carryout pizza. The empty box became their inspiration.

“One student commented that at tournaments you had to bring your own controller, which usually cost around $60, and suggested the idea of making their own, making sure it conformed to the rules but was low cost,” said Caputo. “Another student jumped in and said, ‘Hey, pizza and gaming go together – let’s turn this box into a controller.’ ”

And so they did, market testing their unique controller and a branded model
by surveying fellow gamers. The pizza box won out – whether due to novelty or the added palm space students cited, we will never know. What is certain is that this project helped put the CSUDH esports program into the limelight.

First, a student who worked at Pizza Hut showed the team’s social posts to
their manager, who shared them with the corporate office. This led to a community partnership with Pizza Hut in 2020 that led to the creation of a locally aired commercial.

“The students had the opportunity to participate in the entire process,”
said Caputo. “They worked up the concepts, created the storyboards,
and earned pizzas and pizza boxes to use for more controllers. It was our first mentorship program.”

Next, the pizza-box controller became a showpiece at an alumni event, which was attended by hundreds of parents. It was here that barriers between the Esports Association and families began to crumble, as parents gained clarity about the program and its benefits, recognizing that it was a way for their children to develop passions and skills with a high probability of leading them to job opportunities. From the parents whose children were already participating in CSUDH esports, Caputo heard repeated comments like, “I have never seen my son/daughter be this social before,” and, “They’ve been so much happier since joining the club.”

As the program continued to flourish, its multidisciplinary structure enabled it to add components like health and wellness support, a mentorship program serving local high school students, and professional development curriculum for educators. The program’s efforts and unique focus caught the attention of monitor manufacturer ViewSonic.

“ViewSonic approached us after seeing our social media posts highlighting
the ways in which we’re using esports as a student success strategy,” said Caputo. “Our mentoring program with Compton Unified School District convinced them that CSUDH would be a like-minded partner in developing esports.”

Initial conversations led to a partnership, with ViewSonic serving as the official monitor sponsor for the CSUDH Esports Association, and providing technology and support for career-building opportunities and activities.

Result

It couldn’t have happened at a better time. Concurrent with the ViewSonic- CSUDH Esports Association discussions, the university was in the process of implementing several facilities expansions, including an Esports Incubator Lab. ViewSonic agreed to outfit the new lab with gaming monitors, large screen digital displays, and an interactive whiteboard, as well as to fund team jerseys and other apparel.

“I couldn’t be happier with the ViewSonic team, they are terrific to work with,” said Caputo. “Their vision parallels ours. In addition to their generous product and apparel support, ViewSonic is working with us to develop an internship pipeline for CSUDH students, which will allow them to begin to transfer the skills they’re learning in esports to the workplace. That’s exactly how we want to be supporting our students.”

As the CSUDH Esports Association continues to organically take shape, the Incubator Lab, set to open its doors in the spring of 2022, is destined to become the creative epicenter for the cultivation of ideas, the promotion of student projects, and a showcase for competitive gaming. Caputo looks forward to finding new ways to engage students in the enriching world of esports.

“I’ve had the great joy of seeing so many kids build confidence and competencies through their participation in esports,” he said. “Even those who were once incredibly shy, or had parents who were wary that ‘video games’ are a waste of time. The esports narrative is so much more complex than that. I am thrilled to be a steward of this amazing program.”
