“Every day we get interested visitors. The first thing they say is invariably, ‘Wow!’ We get that over and over. The huge 135-inch ViewSonic display is doing exactly what we wanted – drawing in potential partners and showing them what we do in a dramatic way.”


— Corey Durham, Workforce Systems Administrator

THE CHALLENGE

line drawing of a circular mazeline drawing of a circular maze
  • Create an advanced XR training and development facility, with hardware to support student, trainee and community business needs

The Workforce Division of Hinds Community College (HCC) aligns community members with local jobs and fulfills training needs for local industry and business partners. Job seekers receive workforce training, assessment/testing, and adult basic and continuing education. Community businesses gain an educated and well-trained workforce flowing out of the Division’s programs. This synergistic relationship strengthens regional commerce and community by helping retain, grow, and attract businesses and industries.

In 2020 HCC joined an expansive development project that would transform a historic building in Vicksburg, Mississippi into a state-of-the-art accelerated technology transfer center. The Sen. Thad Cochran Mississippi Center for Innovation & Technology (MCITy) was scheduled to be fully operational in Spring 2023. The HCC Workforce division agreed to use their space to showcase the rapidly evolving world of eXtended Reality (XR) for education and training, with the goal of opening as soon as possible.

“Our vision was to develop a space that would bring awareness to the use of AR/VR for employee training and put it in the hands of local business and industry, as well as to offer classes in XR content development,” said Workforce Systems Administrator Corey Durham. “Businesses are facing a constant revolving door of employees and they can’t keep up with the training needs. When companies use XR to help prepare workers they conserve resources and reduce turnover.”

With that vision in place, Associate Vice President of Workforce David Creel tasked Durham with determining the technology needed to transform it into the functional HCC Emerging Technologies Training Center.

THE SOLUTION

line drawing of a jigsaw puzzle pieceline drawing of a jigsaw puzzle piece
  • 135” ViewSonic® LD135-151 Direct View LED display

  • 86” ViewSonic ViewBoard® IFP8662 high-performance 4K interactive displays

  • ViewSonic VB-STND-003 motorized trolley carts with 90-degree tilt

The scope of the plan encompassed four distinct areas. A central demo center would showcase the capabilities of XR for training; this space required a large display that would make visible the modules trainees would experience through their headsets. Three labs would serve as facilities for teaching AR content development and providing specific employee training experiences; these rooms needed interactive displays to facilitate engagement and collaborative learning. All of this hardware needed to be reliable, commercial grade tech capable of meeting the Center’s anticipated high demand.

To source this tech, Durham partnered with Dan Wilkins from technology solutions provider RJ Young.

“Dan is phenomenal at matching the utility of the space and pairing equipment to achieve all the desired outcomes,” said Durham. “I told him what we wanted to accomplish and he was able to find what we needed.”

Wilkins brought in large screen and interactive displays from several manufacturers for Durham to test out. According to Durham, the ViewSonic products clearly stood out from the rest.

“One thing that sold me on the ViewSonic products was the versatility of the equipment – how much we could do with it and how integrated it could be,” he said. “We wanted modularity and integrated products from a sole provider and ViewSonic was the only manufacturer we looked at that had everything we needed.”

The demonstration room called for a large and eye-catching display to draw in visitors and quickly raise awareness for the impact of XR. A 135” ViewSonic LD135-151 Direct View LED display provided this critical focal point. Two 86” ViewSonic® ViewBoard® IFP8662 high-performance 4K touchscreen displays in the back of the room provided additional training and learning stations.

The classroom labs required interactivity and the versatility to use the displays vertically for presentations and training, and horizontally as a tabletop for collaborative design development. These rooms were outfitted with the 86” ViewBoard IFP8662 interactive displays mounted on ViewSonic VB-STND-003 motorized trolley carts with 90-degree tilt.

THE RESULTS

Line drawing of a rocketLine drawing of a rocket
  • The training center is thriving, hosting daily classes, training, and industry visits

  • The 135” ViewSonic Direct View LED display draws in visitors and showcases the center’s capabilities

  • Students learn to develop engaging VR/AR content on the 86” ViewSonic ViewBoard IFP8662 displays

  • The ViewSonic VB-STND-003 motorized trolley carts enables collaborative, table-top engagement with 3D modelling content

The Hinds Community College Emerging Technologies Training Center opened its doors with a ribbon cutting ceremony December 7, 2022. Shortly thereafter the Workforce Division began hosting its first classes. Interest from local enterprise has been non-stop. Students, trainees and visitors alike are treated to a continuous flow of vibrant, rolling content on the showcase display: from ads and publication outtakes to clips from HCC’s VR training content.

“Every day we get interested visitors,” said Durham, “The first thing they say is invariably, ‘Wow!’ We get that over and over. The huge 135-inch ViewSonic display is doing exactly what we wanted – drawing in potential partners and showing them what we do in a dramatic way.”

Once they see what we do, Durham added, they ask, ‘What can we do with this? How can we leverage this technology?’ It’s all so new and innovative that it can be hard to wrap your mind around it initially.

One of the Center’s first partnerships involved augmenting the Colleges’ Diesel Equipment Technology Program.

“Potential employees tend to envision being covered head-to-toe in grease, which isn’t very appealing, so we partnered with local developers to build a VR experience to show them what this job is really like,” said Durham. “Our VR training lets prospects walk the shop floor and see how clean it is, along with learning how to perform the work. It helps them determine whether this is something they can see themselves doing.”

Students learn how to develop augmented reality content in the Center’s lab spaces, using the 86-inch ViewBoard interactive displays to collaborate and create. Integrated conferencing equipment enables companies to virtually teach extended reality courses, while the ability to cast content onto the screens lets students and instructors easily share content.

“Again, it was this versatility that really drew us to the ViewSonic products. They had all the functionality we needed – the content casting, big screen conferencing capabilities and the mobile cart, not to mention the gorgeous 135-inch display,” said Durham. “The smooth touchscreen response has provided an incredible experience for students working on 3D modelling, especially when using it horizontally like a table. Everything has been ideal.”

This success has been replicated at Hind’s Rankin campus, with a similarly outfitted XR-focused space.

“We only had one room to work with, but we packed in as much as we could, using the blueprint we created for the Vicksburg Center.” said Durham. “It has a ViewSonic 135-inch display and the same lab capabilities, with an 86-inch ViewSonic interactive display.

It was a relief to see everything come together so well, Durham acknowledged, expressing thanks ViewSonic and RJ Young for their support. Clearly a huge boon to the region, the HCC Emerging Technologies Training Center provides exactly the mutually-beneficial relationship among students, businesses and workforce trainees that is at the heart of the Workforce Division’s mission.

Indonesian Luxury Hotel Chooses ViewSonic Direct View LED Display Kit for State-of-the-Art AV Solutions Upgrade

Indonesian Luxury Hotel Chooses ViewSonic Direct View LED Display Kit for State-of-the-Art AV Solutions Upgrade

CUSTOMER PROFILE

The Gaia Hotel Bandung is a 5-star hotel located in West Java, Indonesia. Modern accommodations include 280 rooms and world-class facilities perfect for meetings, weddings, and conferences. Gaia Hotel Bandung aims to accommodate its guests with luxurious amenities and to become a leading brand in Indonesia’s hospitality industry.

“With the All-in-One Direct View LED Display Kit (LDS135-151), the challenges of mobility, flexibility, and connectivity are easily answered. ViewSonic’s LDS135-151 is a fantastic and innovative solution.”


— Subakti Wangsanegara, Managing Director of Gaia Hotels & Resorts

THE CHALLENGE

line drawing of a circular mazeline drawing of a circular maze
  • Gaia Hotel Bandung realized it needed to upgrade its event venue with state-ofthe-art AV equipment.

  • Installing a traditional wallmounted display would cause too much downtime and renovation costs.

  • Events are held in multiple facilities throughout the hotel. The AV equipment must be mobile and quick to install.

  • Traditional displays generally come with messy wires for video, audio and power signals.

To provide the best experience for its guests, the hotel needed new digital signage solutions and AV equipment to be used during its various events. The hotel found that most solutions and traditional LCD video walls provided limited screen sizes and were unable to deliver seamless viewing experiences.

In addition, because different events are held in different rooms and locations throughout the hotel property, fixed video walls lacked the flexibility needed for each space. Installing would require extensive effort and investment, not to mention the downtime needed to renovate the venue. What’s more, most solutions are not equipped with professional speakers and would need to be connected to external audio devices, which also takes additional time and cost to set up. Considering all these issues, Gaia Hotel needed a comprehensive solution that could deliver stunning visuals and powerful audio while remaining simple to operate and install.

THE SOLUTION

line drawing of a jigsaw puzzle pieceline drawing of a jigsaw puzzle piece
  • The ViewSonic® LDS135-151 Direct View LED Display Kit delivers stunning visuals with Full HD resolution, 1.5mm fine pixel pitch, and 120% Rec.709 wide color gamut.

  • Integrated Harman Kardon speakers deliver high-fi delity, theater-level audio and eliminated the need for messy cables that come with external audio systems

  • The included Direct View LED display comes with preassembled LED modules, cabinets, a system control box, and the mobile cart. It can be set up and ready to use within just a few minutes

  • This mobile screen can easily be set up and moved throughout the hotel, so there is no need to install displays in every room

The Gaia Hotel Bandung found exactly what it needed in the ViewSonic® LDS135-151 Direct View LED Display Kit. Thanks to an included flight case, motorized mobile cart and convenient foldable 135” screen, this all-in-one solution delivers for big-screen messaging right out of the box. With its foldable screen design and 360° silent wheels, the display can fit in elevators and be effortlessly moved from one floor to another, and from venue to venue.

The hotel deployed the Direct View LED in its ballroom and conference rooms.  The display’s huge 135” screen, 1080p Full HD resolution and 120% Rec.709 wide color gamut delivered stunning, larger-than-life images for different events and business presentations. In addition, built-in Harman Kardon speakers provided theater-level audio that was perfect for celebrations and parties at the hotel.

Finally, the display also offers a great user experience. Wireless content sharing solutions enable content to be conveniently streamed from mobile devices onto the display, and the embedded operation system and Wi-Fi allows users to work in a familiar interface.

Colegio San Luis Maristas - Barranco Engages Students with ViewSonic ViewBoard Interactive Displays

CASE STUDY

Colegio San Luis Maristas - Barranco Engages Students with ViewSonic ViewBoard Interactive Displays

CUSTOMER PROFILE

Founded in 1923 as one of ten Catholic schools in Peru, the Brarranco branch of the Colegio San Luis Maristas serves students from kindergarten through high school.

The founders of the school were heavily infl uenced by the teachings of St. Marcellin Champagnat, a Catholic saint who was devoted to education. Today, there are over 900 students currently enrolled at the Colegio San Luis Maristas – Barranco campus.

Colegio San Luis Maristas logoColegio San Luis Maristas logo

"One of the benefits of these displays is that they combine the best of both hybrid and in-person classroom setups. Educators can access Zoom, Google Drive, OneDrive and other popular applications to create a richer learning experience.”


— Renzo Urresty, High School Communication Teacher.

THE CHALLENGE

line drawing of a circular mazeline drawing of a circular maze
  • The Colegio San Luis Maristas wanted to streamline and modernize its campus for the return of in-person learning.

In 2021, administrators were tasked with preparing their campus for the return of in-person learning. Although it had been less than two years since students had started learning remotely, in that time, the learning landscape in Peru had shifted dramatically. Students had become accustomed to using computers, laptops and other devices during lessons rather than just learning from whiteboards and textbooks.

Administrators began to seek out solutions that would work cross-functionally with their existing devices and educational software programs that the teachers had adopted. Additionally, administrators were also seeking a solution with features that would enhance learning, such as QR code scanning, questionnaire management and interactive quizzes.

“Children could not go back to traditional learning. They had already been studying through their displays for quite some time. They were used to screens already so the best decision was to look for an alternative for their continued interaction and participation in their pedagogical development in the classroom,” said Renzo Urresty, a communications teacher at the Colegio San Luis Maristas.

According to Maria del Carmen Marini, a fellow kindergarten and first grade teacher, “It’s not easy to be in a classroom in front of 40 students from a different generation who are more familiar with the technology than the teachers.”

In 2019, chalk and whiteboards were still heavily in use at the school. Administrators were mindful that some educators struggled with newer forms of technology and their ultimate solution needed to provide training and support to help get their staff up to speed.

THE SOLUTION

line drawing of a jigsaw puzzle pieceline drawing of a jigsaw puzzle piece
  • 29 ViewBoard® 75” IFP7550-3 interactive displays and WMK-047-2 fixed wall mounts

  • myViewboard Pro license entity accounts

  • Hands-on training for over 50 educators on myViewBoard software and Whiteboard for Windows

After weeks of deliberation, the Colegio San Luis Maristas ultimately selected ViewSonic to equip 29 classrooms with 75” ViewBoard® IFP7550-3 interactive displays and accompanying WMK-047-2 fixed wall mount brackets. 14 displays and brackets were to be sent to its elementary school, 10 to its secondary school and five to its kindergarten classrooms. Additionally, educators also received myViewBoard® entity accounts and access to training so that they could make the most of their new devices.

“One of the benefits of these displays is that they combine the best of both hybrid and in-person classroom setups. Educators can access Zoom, Google Drive, OneDrive and other popular applications to create a richer learning experience,” said Urresty.

Another benefit of using ViewSonic products is the ease of setup and deployment. Although the ViewBoard interactive displays arrived on February 28, the displays were installed and set up by the time students started school in April.

THE RESULTS

Line drawing of a rocketLine drawing of a rocket
  • Students at all grade levels are actively engaging with the material and student performance has dramatically risen in multiple areas.

  • Interactive displays were set up and installed in less than a month.

  • Thanks to training, educators were able to develop higher levels of digital competency.

  • Learning is more equitable as lessons can be turned in without a printer.

  • Students have moved from passive learning to actively collaborating and experimenting.

Since the Colegio San Luis Maristas installed its ViewBoard interactive displays and implemented training, educators reported a significant increase in student engagement and interest in lessons. At the kindergarten level, teachers have been impressed by their students’ ability to learn and interact with this new technology.

“The youngest children have had two years of virtual learning and have adapted naturally to these tools and games that enable them to leverage displays and get actively involved in their own learning. During a lesson, students can take turns leaving once they’re done and the screen can be split into three sections, resulting in high interaction,” explained Marini.

ViewSonic educational solutions have also helped to reduce inequality as well. Students in higher grades no longer need to purchase a printer and ink to complete their homework – a proposition that is as expensive as it is unreliable. Thanks to the ViewSonic companion app, students can synchronize their devices with a simple QR code. Students can then answer questions, share content and get information on lessons and coursework.

The Colegio San Luis Maristas was pleased to fi nd that student performance improved in multiple areas following the adoption of ViewSonic myViewBoard® software.

“The Colegio San Luis Maristas has excelled in leveraging the benefi ts of inclass interactivity and teacher training. Educating teachers has in turn enabled them to connect to today’s students – who are extremely savvy when it comes to interactive experiences. ViewSonic ViewBoard displays encourage students to step outside of the realm of rote learning and memorization and pivot to engaging, interactive lessons that simulate all of their senses and enhance student involvement. This is a defi nitive step forward for modernizing the Colegio San Luis Maristas,” said Alex Carlos, ViewSonic Territory Manager for Peru, Columbia and Ecuador.

Universidad Peruana de Ciencias Aplicadas (UPC) Finds Versatile Hybrid Education Solution in ViewSonic ViewBoard Interactive Displays

CASE STUDY

Universidad Peruana de Ciencias Aplicadas (UPC) Finds Versatile Hybrid Education Solution in ViewSonic ViewBoard Interactive Displays

SCHOOL

Universidad Peruana de Ciencias Aplicadas (UPC) was founded in 1994 and has been a member of Laureate International Universities, the largest network of private universities in the world, since September 2004. UPC’s vision is to be at the forefront of higher education for its academic excellence and innovation. UPC currently has over 60,000 students, 58 undergraduate programs and more than 20 graduate programs across four campuses in Lima, Peru.

"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.”
